Meet Rachel Smith

Certified Prosthetist & Orthotist, CPO

Joined RISE Custom Solutions in 2018

Specialties: Cranial remolding for positional deformities, cranial remolding for post-surgical deformities, pediatric prosthetics, upper limb prosthetics, pediatric orthotics, and idiopathic scoliosis

Philosophy: I strive to work with my patients to reach their goals and achieve the highest amount of mobility. I hope that every custom item going out the door will help patients in their daily lives achieve their goals—whether that is an improved head shape, greater stamina in walking, increased independence in their daily activities, or a higher level of fitness and athletic competition.

Bio: I have always loved to build and fix things. Growing up on a farm I learned early how to think outside the box and make things work from a unique point of view. The medical field always fascinated me, so when I found orthotics and prosthetics as a career path, I knew I had found the perfect fit for me. I really enjoy the long-term relationships that I have with my patients. As kids grow and develop, their needs and activities change and it’s always fun to help my patients realize their potential.
