Anjie was born with a number of challenging conditions, including bilateral PFFD- a birth defect affecting the pelvis- and a left club foot. She came to HSS when she was a baby and received treatment from a team of professionals including Dr. Daniel Green and Dr. Roger Widmann, HSS Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeons, and Glenn Garrison, Director of Prosthetics & Orthotics. Anjie began intensive physical therapy when she was only 1, and started working with Magdalena Oledzka as her primary therapist 6 years ago. Now at 13, she has a better prosthetic fit, decreased pain and was even able to walk down the aisle as a bridesmaid in her sister's wedding! We're very proud of her! #transformationtuesday #pediatrics #orthopedics #HSS

Did you know that April is Autism Awareness Month? Christina Pierozzi, Pediatric Occupational Therapist, says: "Autism Spectrum disorders include a group of developmental disorders that can cause impairments in language and communication, motor skill development, behavior, and social participation. The prevalence of autism is increasing and now affects 1 out of 68 children, and is more common in boys than girls. It is the fastest growing developmental disability in the US. Our pediatric therapists at HSS work with children with autism to meet their physical, occupational, and speech therapy goals." For more information on autism, visit http://www.autismspeaks.org.
