Some disease processes such as infection, ischemia, or diabetic wounds can end with the loss of a limb.
At Duke, a limb loss nurse, physical therapist, and certified prosthetist collaborate to offer a multidisciplinary approach to the total care of the new amputee.
This "Amputation Clinic" focuses on lower extremity limb loss secondary to vascular disease.
Care begins pre-operatively and continues throughout the rest of the patient's course, which often culminates with ambulation on a prosthetic limb.
Call 888-ASK-DUKE (888-275-3853) to schedule an appointment with a vascular disease specialist at Duke.
