There are very few injuries as permanent and disabling as a loss of limb. Loss of limb, or amputation, can affect every aspect of day-to-day life. This type of catastrophic injury can impact the ability to perform your job, take part in your favorite activities, and do the daily tasks you once took for granted. Even as medical technologies continually advance, the loss of a limb is still a life-changing injury.
