Losing all or part of a limb creates a complex health issue that requires ongoing and specialized care. Deaconess Amputee Services provides this level of care for patients who have lost a limb due to trauma, complications from medical conditions or congenital limb deficiencies.
Our team provides education and support for the patient following amputation surgery. This includes instruction on choosing the most appropriate prosthetic device, learning to properly put on and take off a prosthetic device and understanding proper "fit" of a prosthetic. Over time, we help the patient understand and address the multiple effects of limb loss with an ultimate goal of building strength, increasing endurance and independence, and identifying alternate ways to complete activities of daily life.
If you are an amputee in need of these services, follow the steps below to schedule a new patient appointment with Dr. Judith Canlas and Ortho Neuro Specialty Services. Simply follow the steps below to reserve your time.
