Children present with multiple limb differences in both the lower and upper limbs.  These differences are due to congenital anomalies as well as acquired limb amputations.  Some of the limb presentations require decision making relative to conservative treatment vs. surgical intervention.  A panel from the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab will share their knowledge on the comprehensive management of children with limb differences.  Focus will be on the global involvement of the child/family/healthcare team, lower limb and upper limb congenital anomalies, acquired amputations, prosthetic fitting and therapeutic approaches.



Upon completion of the course, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify common clinical presentations for children with congenital and/or acquired amputations.
  2. Define treatment criteria regarding the need for Inpatient vs Outpatient Services
  3. Describe common prosthetic fittings of children with Lower Limb and Upper Limb Limb Differences
  4. Formulate therapeutic treatment plans for children with Lower Limb and Upper Limb Differences
