Amputation Rehabilitation Program:
Amputation is a surgical procedure that involves removal of an extremity or limb (leg or arm) or a part of a limb (such as a toe, finger, foot, or hand), usually as a result of injury, disease, infection, or surgery (to remove tumors from bones and muscles). There are two main categories of limb loss in children, congenital limb deficiency and acquired amputation. According to our own statistics, lower extremity amputation is mainly caused by peripheral vascular disease (PVD) especially if combined with diabetes mellitus, trauma is the second leading cause (e.g. RTA, Blast injuries (fireworks, gunshot)) whereas the main cause of upper extremity amputation is congenital and second cause is traumatic. Management of patients with amputations requires a comprehensive, coordinated, interdisciplinary program throughout the continuum of care. This includes offering the latest practices in medical, prosthetic, and rehabilitation interventions, in order to allow the patients to achieve the highest level of function. Our interdisciplinary rehabilitation team of specialists provides a complete continuum of care for amputees on their physical and emotional journeys to recovery. Rehabilitation is usually provided from the time of acute inpatient hospitalization through a spectrum of inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation care settings. Rehabilitation hospital is an important inpatient station before discharging patient to home where amputees are offered medical, rehabilitation, and nursing services and followed up until discharge from hospital.
