We would like to introduce our patient, Cameron Casparro.
Cameron is two years old and is one of our prosthetic patients. He was in a lawn mower accident a year ago, which left him with a loss of his limb, just below the knee.
Up until recently, he had been unable to walk. Now, with the help of his below the knee prosthetic device, he’s able to stand, walk, run and just be a kid again.
His excitement and beautiful smile lit Up the office the day he came in to be fit with his below knee prosthesis.
We are honored to have been part of Cameron’s first walk. It is a gift we will treasure.
Treasures, like Cameron, are just one reason Barry Fowler, Sr. has been providing orthotic & prosthetic services for over 45 years.
A note on children’s below knee prosthesis:
Trauma is one of the top four reasons for amputation in children. There are numerous ways in which a child amputee is different from an adult amputee. For example, the residual limb for a child will continue to grow. And the demands on a child’s below knee prosthesis is typically more than an adult’s due to a child’s activity level of playfulness, when compared to a sedentary adult. A child can generally begin the fitting process of a below knee process at about the time they’re able to stand.
