MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the Amputation Care Special Interest Group is to provide members of the Federal Physical Therapy and other Sections the opportunity to network and improve the quality of care provided to patients living with amputation(s).

 

VISION STATEMENT

It is the overall goal of the Amputation Care Special Interest Group to have a positive impact on the care and treatment of patients with amputation. There are 500 amputations per day in the United States. The number will continue to grow as the US population ages. Rehabilitation with these patients occurs in many settings and we, as specialists, have the responsibility to establish a solid foundation for their recovery and return to individually optimized function. As professionals our skills must keep pace with the evolution of surgical techniques and prosthetic technology.

Student Amputation Focus Group:

The purpose of the Student Amputation Focus Group is to provide educational, clinical and service opportunities to student members interested in amputation care. The group consists of students with an interest in pursuing a career working with the limb loss community. Our goal is to provide students with a passion for the limb loss community the proper resources to be successful in their professional careers.
