AMPUTATION SURGERY - FREE SECOND OPINION
When a patient hears that they are facing amputation of their limb this is devastating news. Often it can be difficult to make good decisions in the midst of this emotion. The amputation surgery procedure has changed little over the last 30 years. The procedure is often looked at as a "last resort". TSC offers innovative and new techniques in amputation surgery that are not offered anywhere else. TSC surgeons have completed advanced training in amputation techniques over the last 6 years that allow us to offer a type of amputation surgery that can return a patient to their pre-amputation lifestyle. TSC recognizes that often patients are limited in their function with a prosthesis due to the type of amputation surgery they have had.
We encourage patients that are facing amputation to seek out a second opinion from our TSC surgeons with advanced techniques. Please contact our director today to schedule "A SECOND OPINION" if you have been told that amputation surgery may be necessary. We also want you to feel free to meet with one of our Amputee Advocates who has already been through the amputation surgery and can best explain things to you from a personal perspective.
