Amputation

The loss involved in an amputation accident goes far beyond the initial shock and pain of the original injury. Loss of a limb brings many short-term and long-term losses and complications including:

  • Infection prevention
  • Surgical closure of the wound
  • Immediate emergency care
  • Recovery time to allow the wound to heal
  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Long-term pain management
  • If appropriate, outfitting with a limb prosthesis
