Orthotics and Prosthetics
Bob Larson, Certified Orthotist
Orthotics and prosthetics are devices, such as artificial limbs and braces, that replace or augment missing or non-functioning body parts.
Many types of orthotics and prothestic devices are available, such as diabetic footwear, arch supports, post-op shoes and boots, compression garments, braces, scoliosis orthoses, and many others.
Bob is Board Certified with the American Board for Certification in Orthotics and Prosthetics. He served in the U.S. Army for over 20 years, and after retirement served as a Senior Orthotist and Clinical Director in Montana, Wyoming and South Dakota.
He accepts patients with all types of orthotic and prosthetics needs, from pediatrics through adult care, including trauma, acute and chronic care. He has special interests and experience in spinal, pediatrics and neuromuscular patients.
CCH Receives Accreditation for Orthotics and Prosthetics
In April 2016, Rehabilitation Services at CCH was accredited for its orthotics and prosthetics services. Orthotics and prosthetics refer to equipment and devices that help patients when external body parts are lost due to amputation or other deformities, or are used to control, guide, limit or immobilize a body segment for a particular reason. One of the few facilities able to offer orthotics and prosthetics services on site, CCH has two certified practitioners and one resident on staff. These practitioners provide care for patients of all ages, from infants to geriatrics, treating orthotic and prosthetic conditions from the toe to the head. A physician referral is recommended for orthotic and prosthetic services.
