Physiotherapy for the limb amputation service
The physiotherapy team are based in York Hospital, working as part of the specialist Vascular Team and work closely with Occupational Therapists.
They provide pre-operative assessment of those facing prospective major limb amputation, inpatient rehabilitation, management and treatment of allpatients following acute amputation, support to colleagues in managing inpatients with a previous amputation, and discharge planning.
Additionally we provide regular outpatient rehabilitation and follow-up treatment to prospective prosthetic limb users, outpatient reviews of previous prosthesis users, and domiciliary visits.
