Northeast Rehab's Amputee Recovery Program is a Center of Excellence that meets the needs of patients and their families following the loss of a limb(s).
Northeast Rehab believes the patient and family are the central focus of the assigned team of professionals. The goal is to maximize recovery and assist in re-entry to the community. This is done in a warm, friendly atmosphere, which encourages full patient/family participation.
