Amputee Support Group
To meet the needs of this specific patient audience, Southwest General
now offers a monthly Amputation Support Group. This support group is an
important part of the recovery process and provides an atmosphere for
continual learning and support. It is an invaluable resource for amputees,
regardless of the time since amputation.
Attendees meet with other amputees and hear their life-changing stories
and offer support. A new speaker is featured each month, discussing a
wide variety of topics, from the latest in orthotic choices to dealing
with the physical limitations and coping mechanisms. We welcome family
members and significant others of amputees as well.
