Brace and Prosthetic Clinics
The Spaulding Rehabilitation Network is home to fully comprehensive Brace and Prosthetics Clinics which provide expert evaluations and orthotics fittings. Throughout the Spaulding Network, orthotics are custom-made for your individual needs. The clinics include assessments and fittings for lower extremity and upper extremity bracing, as well as neck and back bracing.
The Brace Clinic service is available to you while in the inpatient program as well as following discharge, with lifelong support through our outpatient network bracing and prosthetic services.
Our Brace Clinic team consists of physiatrists, physical therapists, orthotists, and experienced certified prosthetists who collaborate on your case. This team has over 60 years of combined experience caring for patients who need orthotics, bringing you the best area knowledge and expertise in lower extremity and upper extremity prosthetics.
A team of physical therapists also staffs the Spaulding Network’s Brace and Prosthetics Clinics to provide well-rounded instructions and rehab interventions to ensure the safe mobility for you.
Directed by Dr. Ann Marie Thomas and Dr. Richard L. Zaniewski, the Spaulding North Shore Brace Clinic works with amputee patients and those with impairments requiring orthotics in the acute care, rehab, and outpatient phases of their recovery. In Boston, Beth Hansen, PT, oversees patients’ bracing needs and coordinates the inpatient clinic, working closely with the orthotist, staff therapists, and physicians, as well as patients in determining bracing needs while Dr. David Crandell works closely with patients to fulfill any prosthetics needs.
