Our Amputee Recovery Program meets the various needs of patients and their families following the loss of a limb.
We Specialize in Amputee Recovery
We strongly believe that our patients deserve high quality, compassionate care. Northeast Rehab has earned Amputee Specialty Certification from the Joint Commission for our commitment to providing the highest quality care to our patients through the use of only evidence-based therapies.
In order to meet the unique needs of patients recovering from the amputation of a limb, we have specially trained staff to manage the physical and emotional needs of each patient. Our therapists are continuously trained in the latest advances and use of various methods and devices to achieve a functional residual limb.
