The Amputee Care Center's multidisciplinary team is focused on providing you continuity of care throughout your acute care and rehabilitative process. This process consists of three general stages:
- Stage 1: Acute Surgical & Medical Management: During this stage the orthopaedic surgical team is the lead agent for your care. They will ensure that your residual limb allows the maximal function possible and that your other extremity injuries are treated.
- Stage 2: Inpatient Rehabilitation: During this stage a physical medicine physician manages your medical and rehabilitative care. The goal of this phase is to prepare you to function independently outside of the hospital environment.
- Stage 3: Outpatient Rehabilitation: This stage involves rehabilitative, surgical, and medical care as an outpatient while you continue to work toward your functional goals.
