If you need an orthotic device (supportive brace) or a prosthetic device (artificial limb), or would like a second opinion on how your current device fits or functions, we can help. Finding the right device for your goals and lifestyle can be challenging, but it can also make all the difference when you do.

At Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist, our expertise lies in working with you to identify the ideal orthotic or prosthetic device that maximizes your mobility, function and ultimately improves your quality of life.

Who can benefit from orthotic and prosthetic devices?

A prosthetic device (or prosthesis) is used to replace all or part of a missing or amputated limb, such as a hand, foot, arm or leg. If you have difficulty using your current device or are looking to get your first prosthesis, we can help you find the best possible fit for your unique needs.

An orthotic device (or orthosis) - such as a leg, foot or wrist brace, or a shoe insert - helps support weakened muscles, improves alignment, assists in movement and reduces pain. If you or someone in your family has undergone a surgical procedure, dealt with a neurological disorder or faced foot-related issues, an orthosis could bring major gains in overall function.
