Amputee Clinic (Prosthetic Clinic)

Our on-site Amputee Clinic identifies and meets prosthetic prescription and training. The Program also facilitates community integration and participation in life roles through participation of our patients in our Simulated Living Center.

The Prosthetic Clinic, which is offered through the Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation is available to all patients who have experienced an amputation as a result of illness or injury. Each patient is thoroughly evaluated by a Physiatrist, a physician specializing in physical medicine & rehabilitation, a certified prosthetist, and a physical therapist. The team works closely with the patient to prescribe and fit an appropriate prosthesis, and to develop a management plan that meets the total needs of the patient, and focuses on maximizing overall independence and mobility. When needed, referrals can be made to other on-site resources including, occupational therapy, nutritional counseling, and a certified wound care nurse specialist.
