Orthotics & Prosthetics

Essentia Health’s orthotists and prosthetists are certified by the American Board for Certification in Orthotics and Prosthetics.  We are also accredited by The Joint Commission.

We provide care to patients with disabling conditions of the limbs and spine and to patients with total or partial absence of a limb.  Together with your physician and other members of the rehabilitation team, we design, make and fit braces (orthotics) and artificial limbs (prosthetics).

Our goal is to restore your health following a musculoskeletal imbalance or the loss of a limb.  We help return you to the activities you previously enjoyed.  You will be seen over multiple appointments to assure the best fit, function and comfort of your orthotic and/or prosthetic.

Services Provided

We specialize in artificial limbs, braces, foot orthotics and extra depth shoes for adults and children.  We have a specialized scanner to custom mold cranial helmets for infants.  Thanks to our two convenient locations (one in Duluth and one in Fargo), we are often able to coordinate your appointment with others you have at Essentia Health reducing the number of visits you have.  We also offer insurance verification and are able to access your physician’s notes (if you were seen by an Essentia Health provider).  We build and repair devices on-site reducing the time you are without your device when it needs repair.
