Why Choose Nobbe?
Nobbe Orthopedics is the only practice in the TriCounties area using STARscanner_™ technology. We have been refining the process of cranial remolding since 1994. As a family owned and operated business, we have been providing optimal prosthetic and orthotic care since 1964.
Your First Appointment
Your first appointment will be with Sharadi Nobbe, RN. She will conduct a thorough evaluation. This includes questions about your baby's history, examination and calliper measurement of your baby's head, clinical photographs, and a STARscan™. Parents will learn more about their baby's head shape and treatment options. If necessary, treatment with a cranial remolding orthosis will be reviewed and a plan that is right for your family will be created.
Nobbe Treatment Protocols
The Registered Nurse and Certified Orthotists work as a team to provide state-of-the-art care for your baby. The cranial remolding orthosis, or helmet, will be fitted to your baby within 2 weeks of the STARscan™. You will leave the delivery appointment with a full understanding of how to use the orthosis.
Most companies, including Medi-Cal, cover cranial remolding treatment if their coverage criteria is met. During the initial appointment, you will learn whether your child meets their coverage criteria. Nobbe Orthopedics staff will contact your insurance carrier for you. We maintain contracts with most major carriers. We are proud to offer an active duty military discount, as TriCare does not offer cranial remolding as a benefit.
