Dr. Klebe is a specialist in the use of functional orthotics. These custom devices are created from an appropriate impression cast of each of the patient's feet taken by Dr. Klebe. These orthodics are specific for each patient. Orthotics place the bones and joints of the patient's feet in an appropriate position so that the feet and legs function more towards normal. Orthotics are worn in the shoes to stabilize the patient's lower extremity. Orthotics are utilized for patients of all ages. They can be used in some cases as a treatment instead of surgery and are needed after surgery to stabilize the instability that initially caused or accentuated the patient's problem.
