Hanger Clinic Selects More Than 300 Orthotic and Prosthetic Clinicians Nationwide To Be Part of Pediatric Specialty


AUSTIN, Texas – May 18, 2022 – To help ensure children from infancy to young adulthood have access to the highest quality, individualized orthotic and prosthetic (O&P) care, Hanger Clinic has selected more than 300 board-certified pediatric O&P clinicians to be part of an esteemed group of Pediatric Specialists, the largest of its kind. Hanger Clinic Pediatric Specialists are experienced in the O&P management of more than 50 pediatric conditions, applying their knowledge of pediatric anatomy and clinical expertise to help achieve the best possible outcome for each child. 

By regularly participating in focused training related to pediatric growth patterns, developmental milestones, and treatment timelines and strategies, Hanger Clinic Pediatric Specialists continuously further their education and provide consistent, evidence-based care nationwide. The team follows a set of validated, research-based clinical practice guidelines in treating cerebral palsy, scoliosis, plagiocephaly, and hypotonia. They also prioritize the collection of outcomes data, which allows them to track and monitor patient progress over time. 

“Between Hanger Clinic’s collective expertise, commitment to education and outcomes, and high standard of care, our Pediatric Specialists are able to meet growing children wherever they are in their care pathway and empower them to succeed,” said James Campbell, PhD, Hanger’s Chief Clinical Officer. “This launch of our pediatric specialty not only differentiates Hanger Clinic as the nation’s leading provider of pediatric O&P care, it spotlights the life-changing care our clinicians provide to this unique patient population.” 

Hanger Clinic now offers online resources and educational materials to help educate parents about the benefits of O&P interventions based on their child’s diagnosis, including device wear and care guides, a medical condition library, and “find a specialist” search function – which features in-depth biographies for Pediatric Specialists across the country. 

“The most rewarding part of my job is being able to educate families so they feel comfortable and knowledgeable about their child’s diagnosis and treatment journey,” said Megan Chamis, MSPO, CO, Hanger Clinic Pediatric Specialist and orthotist in Hartford, Connecticut, who has worked with hundreds of children over her 30-year career, and who recently spoke to U.S. News & World Report about the importance of early scoliosis detection and treatment considerations. “Providing care for pediatric patients requires a delicate balance of instruction, empathy, and support. Over time we’re able to find a powerful combination for success, and it’s truly a privilege to establish that trust and guide them on their journey.”
