Amputee Rehabilitation Program

Good Shepherd’s inpatient Amputee Rehabilitation Program offers a highly individualized and multi-disciplinary approach to care. Inpatient pre- and post-prosthetic amputee rehabilitation is available.

The goal of this patient-centered program is to return individuals with an amputation to their highest potential of physical function possible, helping to regain a productive, rewarding lifestyle through the use of technology and hands-on therapy.

Good Shepherd’s amputee team is directed by a physician specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation. The care team meets on a regular basis to assess your progress and develop or adjust your treatment goals.

The Amputee Rehabilitation Program, which is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), specializes in evaluating and treating:

  • Physical impairments from amputation, including difficulty walking, working or performing tasks of daily living
  • Swelling reduction, strength improvement and range of motion
  • Pain control and phantom limb syndrome
  • Prosthetic and orthotic needs, including prescriptions and troubleshooting

“When I first got the prosthesis, I asked [my physiatrist] if I would be able to dance again, and he said there was no reason why not.”
