Amputation


Amputation is the surgical removal of part of an extremity or an entire limb (fingers and toes up to shoulders and hips).

Amputation can be necessary due to a variety of reasons including trauma and infection in the limb. Following an amputation, rehabilitation can help a patient learn how to safely use their residual limb, as well as teach them how to correctly use any type of assistive device or prosthetic.
