Starting a comprehensive rehabilitation exercise program following a surgical amputation is essential to the recovery process. Returning to the lifestyle to which you or a loved one are accustomed following a surgical amputation can be challenging, but the support of an expert rehabilitation program like that at Spalding Rehabilitation Hospital ensures you never have to take the journey alone.
A comprehensive rehabilitation program following surgical amputation helps patients:
- Maximize independence
- Regain productivity
- Enhance daily living skills
At Spalding Rehabilitation Hospital, our comprehensive approach to rehabilitation after amputation focuses on post-surgical and prosthetic therapy — ultimately helping our amputation patients reintegrate into their daily activities.
