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 Inpatient Treatment

Inpatient services are provided for patients with single or multi-limb loss of the upper and/or lower extremity. The care team focuses on the medical management of the amputation, as well as any other coexisting conditions, nursing care, physical and occupational therapy services. Our goal is to help you regain your strength and independence in order to maintain a fulfilling life.

A Singing Miracle: How Finding My Voice Helped Me Heal

During my first day at inpatient rehab, I was terrified. I had grown comfortable with my nurses, doctors and my small ICU room that I called home for three months. But I remember the smile on my husband’s face when he saw me dressed for the first time, meeting my sweet therapists, Erin Smith and Bridgett Denicola, as well as my incredible doctors, Amy Wilson and Sabrina Young. We knew immediately that they were placed in my journey for a reason.
