Orthotics & Prosthetics

Depending on the specific orthopedic condition, you or your loved one may benefit from an orthotic device (orthosis) or a prosthetic device to help you return to as much function as possible.

  • Orthotics – External devices such as braces, splints, shoes and shoe inserts, wraps, collars, boards and more that help adjust the body’s structure and function to reduce pain and improve movement
  • Prosthetics – Artificial devices designed to restore normal function by replacing a missing body part such as hand, wrist, shoulder, arm, leg, foot, ankle, knee, hip

At OU Health, you and your loved ones – both adults and children – gain access to expert orthotic and prosthetic specialists, certified by the American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics and Pedorthics (ABC), who provide a thorough evaluation of your situation and work with you or your loved ones to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets your particular goals, activity level, lifestyle and current and long-term needs. Your OU Health orthotic and prosthetic specialists stay with you every step of the way, from first visit through ongoing follow-up care.
