At Arkansas Children’s Orthotic and Prosthetic Department, we are a team of highly trained, educated and compassionate orthotists (brace designers), prosthetists (artificial arm and leg designers) and technicians. We dedicate our work to helping children ranging from newborns to young adults achieve their own level of success with the family’s support.

Your child's individual needs may be met with a pre-fabricated orthosis sized to fit. Many patients require an orthosis to be custom made for their specific condition. By using art, science, and technology, we can design and create tools (braces, arms or legs) unique to your child that will make life’s challenges a little easier. We love what we do and we cannot thank you enough for trusting us with your care.
