Amputee Rehabilitation

About Our Amputee Program

An amputation is a life-changing event. It requires that you start approaching life in a whole new way. Our therapists are experienced in helping you adapt to your new normal and working with you to overcome the challenges that arise after an amputation. Through physical therapy and occupational therapy, we give you the treatment, education and support to live a healthy, productive life long after an amputation.

Recovering from an amputation is most often done in an inpatient setting and services are provided for patients with single or multi-limb loss of the upper and/or lower extremity. Outpatient therapy can be necessary to help accustom new prosthetic devices and home health services are also offered to help with adjustments to home life.

Our Approach to Outpatient Treatment

Recovering from an amputation is most often done in an inpatient setting. However, continued outpatient therapy is sometimes necessary to help you become accustomed to your new prosthetic device. Our therapists will work with you using physical therapy and occupational therapy to help you gain confidence and independence with your prosthesis. We also provide education and training on how to properly maintain and care for your prosthesis.

Physical Medicine Consultation

After you complete your initial rehabilitation, you may need life-long counseling and care. Our physicians, who specialize in prosthetics and amputation care, can meet all ongoing amputation and prosthetic management needs.
