Departamento de Ortopedia y Prótesis
Explanation:
"Orthoptics" y "Ortostática" son incorrectas.
"Orthotics" es la ciencia que estudia la creación, implementación y uso funcional de prótesis y 'devices' en seres vivos. Lo más cercano en español es "Ortopedia y Prótesis"; la palabra 'ortesis' también existe, pero su significado médico es bastante más circunscripto a problemas óseos.
"Ortostática" tiene que ver con las adaptaciones hemodinámicas a la bipedestación -- es otro tema.
Suerte!
Elena

¿ortóptica? ¿ortopedia? ¿clínica ortopédica? ¿...?


Explanation:
This one got me going for a while and end up a little frustrated. I sense it's a typo and you mean: "ORTHOPTICS" (the study or treatment of irregularities of the eyes". Otherwise, couldn't find "Orthotics" as is anywhere, but "Orthopedics" or "Orthopaedics", although my wife says she uses "orthotics" but then she goes to the "Clínica ortopédica" or to the "Ortopedia" to get "suelas ortopédicas". Could it be that "orthotics" is "orthopedics" minus one murdered syllable? Dunno but there you go, lotsa food for thought for you...cheers and luck :)

Explanation:
These usually refer to corrective inserts for shoes, ¿no? This is a suggestion to consider according to the context.

Departamento de Ortostática


Explanation:
Again, we're talking about a department. Orthotics is the science of specific instruments and their use in straightening out bones. I just wish we had an Orthotic specialty to straighten out humanity in general! ;-)

clínica/sección/departamento/división de ortótica / ortostática/ ortopedia


Explanation:
To help you sort out which term you need for your target readership, I did a quick search on Alta Vista for a variety of combinations.

I get nothing for +departamento+ortopedia

14 for +clinica+ortopédica (all in Latin America)
See: http://www.altavista.com/cgi-bin/query?q=+clinica+ortopdica&k...

Nothing for: +clinica+ortótic*

A couple of hits each for *ortóticos* & *ortótica* (the medical field that produces *ortóticos*)

6 hits for *ortostática*, most of them in Spain

But nothing for either +departamento+Ortostática or +clínica+Ortostática

Also, here is the definition of *orthotics*, from Termium:

English:Orthoses
orthotics s CORRECT,PLUR
orthetics s CORRECT,PLUR
DEF - the field of knowledge relating to orthoses and their use. s
DEF - orthosis: a brace or other orthopedic device that is applied to an existing segment of the body for the purpose of protecting the segment or assisting in restoration or improvement of its function. s

Ortóptica


Explanation:
More of the same to complicate your life a little more. If it's Orthoptics what you're after, then i found this for you:
Ortóptica / Orthoptics
Técnica de ejercicios oculares para corregir los ejes visuales de los ojos que no están coordinados adecuadamente en la visión binocular.
Might help (but I hope NOT to hate me!
luck :)
