Amputee Rehabilitation: From Pre-op to Return to Sport using Evidence Based Care
The goal of this course is to enable you to tailor each patient’s treatment for the most effective outcomes in light of the multiple problems that patients with limb loss face. This course offers a multidisciplinary team perspective and highlights issues and therapy implications from amputation surgery through prosthetic prescription. It will address complications and common risk factors that an amputee case load can present.
This exciting course will address multiple levels of limb loss due to diabetic, dysvascular, trauma, cancer and sepsis causes. Detailed analysis of complex cases will help clinicians hone their clinical decision making skills. New technology, surgical options and future directions to address current problems are included.
