Amputation

Specialty of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

Amputation is the cut or separation of a body extremity by trauma or surgery. As a surgical measure is carried out to control pain caused by disease in the affected limb; for example, a tumor or gangrene. If amputation occurs as a result of an accident, sometimes that part of the body can reconnect when they are appropriate to the severed part and stump care. We must be especially careful with symptoms that result: bleeding, possible infection or shock.
