Amputee RehabilitationThe amputee rehabilitation program is specially designed for people who have experienced limb loss. After amputation surgery, participants begin intensive physical and occupational therapy. Our inpatient amputee program requires at least three hours of therapy every day. Individuals admitted to the program must have a physician's referral and be willing and able to actively participate.
At The Rehabilitation Institute, we strongly encourage family involvement. We provide counseling, education, and team conferences with family members. This supports our commitment to patient and family centered care.
The Rehabilitation Institute’s amputee program has consistently positive patient outcomes.

Under the coordination of a rehabilitation nurse, patients receive outpatient procedures and services such as psychology, social work, and therapy services with respect to their long-term needs.
