The Amputee Rehabilitation Program at the University of Maryland Rehabilitation & Orthopaedic Institute provides comprehensive care for patients who have lost an arm or leg from either vascular disease or a traumatic injury. We offer both inpatient and outpatient services to help patients gain knowledge, strength, and confidence to adapt to their new life. The care extends far beyond just the physical issues such as wound care, prosthetics care and physical and occupational therapies. To help address the psychological issues that come with losing a limb, the program also offers support groups and peer mentoring as well as introductions to activities such as adapted sports.

All patients undergo extensive rehabilitation to help them recover and get back to life at work, home and in the community. Our comprehensive services include:

  • Physical therapy
