Losing a limb immediately alters your mobility, ability to perform certain activities and daily life. Many patients also struggle with their self-image and basic self-care following an amputation. Post-amputation rehabilitation gives you time, space and resources to recover after surgery.
At PAM Health our team of medical experts comes from a range of specialties to assist your recovery after losing a limb. Our goal is to help you achieve your highest level of independent function while also equipping you with resources to help you integrate back into your life and community.
Whether as a result of war and overseas service, peripheral artery disease due to diabetes or other causes, nearly 2 million people live with limb loss in the United States.
Amputation is the surgical removal of a limb or portion of a limb and is most often needed due to trauma or to control an underlying disease, such as a tumor or gangrene. Our Amputation Rehabilitation Program helps you feel less alone during your journey with limb loss while helping you return to your highest level of function and independence. The overall goal is to improve your quality of life — physically, emotionally, and socially.
Our comprehensive Amputation Rehabilitation Program aims to meet the needs of each patient we serve. We encourage active involvement, both from the individual who has experienced amputation and their family or support system.
We begin the rehabilitation process by creating an individualized treatment plan. Each stage of your unique program seeks to promote mobility and independence, reduce pain, assist with healing and care of the amputation site, improve self-esteem, and ultimately see you reintegrate into your everyday life.
