If you are among the more than one million people in the United States who have had a limb amputated, you may be facing significant lifestyle changes.
Amputations can occur as a result of a number of conditions, including cancer, accident or poor circulation associated with diabetes. No matter what the cause, the professional guidance and support of trusted rehabilitation experts can help you in recovering and regaining your abilities safely and efficiently.
Once a prosthetic device is designed and fitted, you may benefit from balance training and clinical education by a physician or physical therapist to ensure maximum comfort and health. You may also find medical psychology services helpful, as you adjust to your new situation throughout the recovery process.
Depending on your unique needs and recovery goals, one of our rehabilitation hospitals may be the first stop on your road to recovery following amputation. Physician, therapy and psychology services are also offered in our outpatient centers.
