Limb Salvage

Saving Limbs Saves Lives

The limb salvage/amputation prevention programs within the hospitals of Community Healthcare System offer patients suffering from non-healing wounds in the lower extremities or pain while walking or at rest, a variety of treatment options. Oftentimes, patients with these conditions do not recognize the severity of problems until it is too late, causing a loss of a limb. This program diagnoses, treats, educates and rehabilitates patients to help them toward recovery.

Our multidisciplinary team of physicians and healthcare personnel determines the best treatment options to meet each patient’s specific needs. Some options may include wound care, cardiovascular medicine, vascular treatment, nutrition, exercise education and general maintenance of proper foot care to improve quality of life.
