Experts in Amputation Care

Some patients come to Gaylord for amputation care while recovering from a recent loss of limb. For others, their amputation occurred many years ago. Regardless of when it happened, our inpatient and outpatient experts provide the care and direction necessary to move forward. The challenge may be a new prosthetic, uncompensated gait patterns, or the desire to begin or resume a sport or activity. Gaylord’s team, which includes board-certified clinicians, collaborates with partners on the latest technology options to help patients achieve the highest level of independence and performance.

Through our Outpatient Services,  we offer our Prosthetic and Orthotic Clinic to help patients with an amputation find the best equipment to maximize comfort and use in order to meet individual needs and goals.

Jane's Recovery from Multiple Amputations

Jane, a nurse, was on vacation in St. Lucia when she was bitten by bug during the night. She started feeling like she had the flu and then she had to be carried onto her plane home. The taxi from the airport took her to the hospital where she lost circulation in her arms and legs. Her first amputation was her right leg above the knee. Days later her left arm was removed below the elbow and then right after that her left leg below the knee was amputated. Jane came to Gaylord for her rehabilitation. She said, "They wouldn't even let me get depressed. I called it the Gaylord effect." Jane now walks with two lower leg prosthetics.
