Limb Loss Rehabilitation

Limb Loss Rehabilitation is part of the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) department. Our services are built on a continuum of care that includes our inpatient program and outpatient service and some outpatient services are provided via Telerehab. All programs on our brain injury continuum of care are CARF accredited.

Our limb loss rehabilitation programs serve survivors of upper or lower extremities, including those who have lost more than 1 limb. Limb loss is often a result of vascular problems, but can be a result of trauma and can be one of many injuries for a survivor of polytrauma.

Limb loss rehabilitation can focus on non-prosthetic related needs and/or prosthethic needs, like artificial limb fit and gait training, in partnership with our Prosthetic and Orthotics department.

The focus of limb loss rehabilitation is to improve functional independence, improve quality of life and provide support during recovery. Services include attention to mental well-being, family dynamics, and community reintegration.

Minneapolis Limb Loss Rehabilitation is a member of the VA national Amputation System of Care and we serve as a Rehab hub for other VA Medical Centers in the Upper Midwest. Our limb loss rehab programming serves as one of seven VHA Regional Amputation Centers
