Riaan Van Der Westhuizen Ortotist Group

At CH van der Westhuizen orthopedic services our vision is to improve our patient’s quality of life through innovative orthotic and prosthetic solutions.

We can immobilize, support, maintain and correct any anatomical segment by the use of an orthoses. We use innovative prefabricated orthoses as well as custom made orthoses to manipulate or support these segments.   

We also have a state of the art foot scanner which scans your feet in all planes and provide us with all your pressure points during a dynamic gait analyses. The information gathered is evaluated and an innersole is fabricated to your need within 2 working days.  

We can also replace a limb which was amputated by manufacturing a prosthesis. These prosthesis can enhance a patient’s life by giving them back what they’ve lost.  The patient will be able to function independently and gain back mobility.  

We have a highly motivated team which walks the extra mile for our patients.
