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.

Our profession has made substantial progress in regards to furthering direct access legislation.  Every state and the District of Columbia now has some form of direct access provision.  Unfortunately, some state provisions are still quite restrictive and significant barriers persist at the local and institutional level in regards to implementation.

We're here to help.

Whether you're just starting out on your journey to learning more about Direct Access or you are a seasoned veteran looking to help advance the cause in your circle of influence, we're here for you.

We'll guide you through navigating the complex world of state and institutional regulations and if you'd like, we'll work with you to create a customized plan to bring about lasting change. 

It takes one person to be the catalyst for change.  Will you be the one?
