Amputation can occur from trauma (due to accident or injury) or surgery (due to a disease process, cancer, infection or a number of other reasons). Losing a limb can be painful, both physically and emotionally, but having the support of an experienced rehab team can make a difficult situation easier. Surgical amputation allows you time to prepare and learn what to expect.
Our pre-surgery rehabilitation or “Pre-Habilitation” program is designed to help prepare you, both mentally and physically, for your upcoming surgery so that you can have a great outcome. You will come to the out-patient clinic 3 times per week for 2-3 weeks prior to your surgery for training, strengthening and equipment identification.
