    Understanding Amputations and its Effects

    An amputation is a surgical procedure that removes all or part of an individual’s limb. Amputations commonly occur to resolve injuries to one’s fingers or hands, feet or toes, arms, and legs. Amputations normally require an anesthetic and a hospital stay once the procedure is complete. This is because close monitoring is necessary after an amputation occurs to ensure that no complications arise. In most cases, an individual who has recently received an amputation will also require ongoing physical therapy to learn to survive without the amputated limb. Many quickly learn that the effects of amputations are lifelong and often debilitating.

    Causes of Amputations in Accidents

    There are a variety of reasons why amputations may be necessary. Two common methods of amputations in the event of an accident are trauma or surgery.
