What is amputation?
Amputation is an acquired condition that results in the loss of a limb, usually from injury or disease (such as diabetes or peripheral vascular disease). Loss of a limb produces a permanent disability that can impact a patient's self-image, self-care and mobility (movement). The Amputation Program at Baptist Health Rehabilitation Institute includes two phases: pre-prosthetic and prosthetic to assist individuals in regaining functional independence.
