Cleft Foot Pediatric Research and Clinical Trials

Improving outcomes for lower extremity disorders

The Orthopedic Center's Lower Extremity Program is dedicated to the comprehensive care of all lower limb conditions in infants, children and teens. Patients with congenital, neuromuscular, sports-related, oncologic and traumatic or post-traumatic conditions of the lower extremity receive multi-disciplinary care that includes occupational and physical therapy, splinting/casting and reconstructive surgery.

The Program is committed to improving clinical care through continued clinical and basic science research. Many of our investigations have resulted in national and international presentations or peer-reviewed medical publications—and all have increased our ability to provide the highest standard of care.
