Infant and children prosthesis should not be a down scaled version of an adult prosthesis. Pediatric prosthetic care should be recognized as a specialty and the prosthetist providing care for our children must focus on the specific needs and challenges that this age group requires. The pediatric prosthetist should develop the communication skills required to interact with both patients and their parents. Children require regular monitoring of their prosthesis, constant adjustments to their prosthesis and periodical evaluations of their prosthetic needs as they grow, develop and mature.
When pediatric prosthetic care is required, Gulf Coast Prosthetics truly lives up to our promise of life-long care. We commit to each family so parents can feel confident that their child is being treated with the optimum outcome in mind, not only for the present, but for future changes in their lives as well.
