Lower Extremity Alignment Clinic

The Lower Extremity Alignment Clinic is available to otherwise healthy children under the age of 10 with concerns for flat feet, bow legs, knock knees, in-toeing, and out-toeing.

Under the direction of our orthopedic surgery specialists, trained pediatric orthopedic nurse practitioners and physician assistants (Raquel Sanchez, P.A.-C., Mary Lou Scott, P.N.P., Kathryn Abare, P.N.P., and Erynn Meier, P.A.-C.) provide a comprehensive orthopedic evaluation of each child, including the spine, hips and legs. An X-ray exam of the lower extremities or hips may be recommended during the visit. After a comprehensive evaluation, families may be directed to follow up with one of our orthopedic surgeons. Patients with complex medical conditions, developmental delay, neuromuscular disorders and congenital abnormalities are not seen in this clinic.

The Lower Extremity Alignment Clinic is offered weekly at our Main Campus and Escondido locations by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, call 858-966-6789.
