When your child is missing all or part of an arm, leg, hand or foot—from birth or as the result of trauma—it affects your entire family. All of our team members are trained and experienced in working with children with limb deficiencies and deformities and their families. We work closely with patients to make sure they have the training and support needed to be independent and confident, now and into the future.
Our surgeons have received additional limb lengthening training, and remain active in the limb lengthening and deformity communities. This helps ensure that your child receives the most up-to-date and informed treatment possible. Many of the Limb Deficiency Program surgeons are also members of ACPOC (Association of Children's Prosthetic-Orthotic Clinics) and LLRS (Limb Lengthening and Reconstruction Society).
The Children’s Limb Deficiency Program’s expertise goes beyond the surgeons. It also involves working with our pediatric physical therapists and orthotists to help ensure that your child’s limbs remain as functional as possible.
Some physicians and affiliated healthcare professionals on the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta team are independent providers and are not our employees.
