Our multidisciplinary team of specialists provides a complete continuum of care for amputees on their physical and emotional journeys to recovery.
Each patient has a collaborative team of specialists throughout the process such as surgeons, rehabilitation physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, nurses, prosthetists, social workers, nurses, and psychologists. Together, they focus on movement, strength, endurance, as well as pain management, counseling and education, and other tools to use in the community.
Working with the patient, our emphasis is on holistic rehabilitation. It’s not just about the fitting of an artificial limb, but also learning to have a highly functioning life once patients leave our care.
