Partial amputations of the foot can include: toe amputation, mid foot amputation, or shorter combinations. All amputations limit foot functions. Our experts utilize high performance options to improve user outcomes.
There are several different types of upper extremity amputations that can occur including: fingers or partial hand, wrist disarticulation, transradial, elbow disarticulation, transhumeral, shoulder disarticulation, and interscapular thoracic. Each presents unique challenges for which our experts will help create optimal outcomes meeting patient goals.
Parents of children with amputations seek the care that their child needs to play and live like any other kid. When working with children who have challenges our goal is always to ensure that the care meets a complete care program scripted appropriately for their individual daily needs, challenges, and ambitions.
