Kimberly Gorbutt is a certified prosthetist orthotist at UW Health. She treats people with foot and ankle disorders, gait (walking and movement) problems, below-the-knee amputations, spinal conditions such as scoliosis (sideways spinal curve) and other conditions that affect movement. Kimberly also treats infant skull deformities such as plagiocephaly and brachycephaly (flat, short or abnormal head shape).
Kimberly works with each patient to make and fit the appropriate prosthetic device for them. This includes artificial legs, to replace missing, disfigured or injured limbs and other parts of the body, as well as orthotic devices such as ankle, foot, knee or leg braces for weakened limbs, bones, joints and nerves.
Her care philosophy is to treat each patient like family and listen to their stories to find solutions that work best for them.
In her free time, Kimberly enjoys hiking, biking and downhill skiing.
I love my work because it blends creativity, problem-solving and hands-on artistic skills.
