Lafayette Physical Rehabilitation Hospital’s amputation program is dedicated to treating people with amputations and limb deficiencies to achieve maximum independence. We develop a customized treatment plan that caters to each individuals personal needs and goals. Our patients with amputations are seen in the multidisciplinary Amputee/Gait Clinic.
This clinic is comprised of the physiatrist (a physician specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation) who is an expert in the care of people with limb loss including, a prosthetist and an occupational and/or physical therapist. We all work together to address patients with any problems or issues as a team and share clinical expertise to evaluate and provide what is best for each individual.
