Prosthetic and Amputee Rehab Clinic

A dysfunctional limb can have both physical and emotional impact on an individual. Deformed limbs can affect self confidence and impact day-to-day functions. That’s why orthotics and prosthetics are so important. These external medical devices are used to serve two different purposes. Orthotic devices such as braces and splints help stabilize, immobilize, prevent deformity, protect against injury or assist with the function of a body part. Prosthetics, on the other hand, are artificial limbs that replace missing and amputated body parts.

Loma Linda University Medical Center’s (LLUMC) orthotics and prosthetics team is comprised of American Board Certified and credentialed staff committed to each patient’s unique rehabilitation needs. This approach is reflected in the treatment plans that our specialists tailor to each patient as well as the custom prosthetic and orthotic designs that our team creates. 

The team at LLUMC is capable of fabricating a full spectrum of devices such as braces, prosthetic limbs, orthotic devices and FDA-approved cranial remolding helmets to help patients feel and look their best. Our fabrication lab is also located on-site to ensure that high quality products are engineered to meet each patient’s specific needs.
