At The Rehabilitation Institute of St. Louis, an affiliation of BJC Healthcare and Encompass Health, both St. Peters and Central West end locations have achieved national gold standard certifications from The Joint Commission as well as The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities.

Through the vast experience of our interdisciplinary team and knowledge with the latest technologies and treatments for amputee patients, The Rehabilitation Institute of St. Louis has what it takes to help our patients progress toward independence. The interdisciplinary team includes: physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, prosthetists, nursing staff, counseling services, recreational therapy and nutrition services. With compassion as our driving force, our talented teams work with patients and their loved ones to develop coping skills and to help them to adjust to life after amputation. Whether shaping a residual limb for a prosthesis, learning about skin care or training on prosthetic gait and limb maintenance, we work to answer our patients’ questions, increase their independence in daily living skills and focus on mobility with and without a prosthesis. We change lives for the better by focusing on the unique aspects of amputee care.
