Alexis Peterson, CPO


Alexis is an ABC-certified prosthetist/orthotist for Hanger Clinic in California.

Alexis is passionate about orthotic and prosthetic care because she truly enjoys making a difference in the lives of her patients, making their day-to-day lives easier. Alexis specializes in cranial remolding orthoses, and she especially enjoys working with babies and their families because the results are so rewarding; while the treatment time is relatively short, the results are for a lifetime. She loves to be a part of each family’s journey, seeing the transformation as they may start the process with uncertainty, but at the end of their child’s treatment, they feel such a sense of relief and happiness as they see their child’s positive outcome.

Alexis also specializes in working with neurologically-involved patients, specifically in post-stroke care. Outside of the clinic, she enjoys living in the central coast of California and all the outdoor activities that come along with it.
