Amputation Recovery Pathway
Surgeon, patient, and prosthetist meet to determine the best surgical procedure and chart the recovery pathway.
Prosthetist meets with patient post-operatively for incision care and to map rehab.
Prosthetist fits multiple trial prosthesis and guides rehab process through a series of appointments.
Prosthetist fits the permanent prosthetic when patient is fully recovered at about 3-6 months post-op.
Patient resumes normal activities and follows up with prosthetist every 6 months for adjustments and supplies.
