Spartanburg Rehabilitation Institute is recognized nationally for developing better results for amputee patients. The hospital earned The Joint Commission’s disease-specific certification for Amputee Rehabilitation after a rigorous on-site review of the hospital’s compliance with national standards, clinical guidelines, and outcomes of care.
Amputation is when all or part of an arm or leg is removed surgically to treat an injury, disease or infection. After an amputation, an individual can face a difficult period of physical and emotional recovery. Rehabilitation following an amputation can enhance a patient’s recovery process and minimize functional disability. The goal is to help our patients reach the highest level of independence possible following an amputation so they can enjoy the highest quality of life possible.
Certification through The Joint Commission’s Disease-Specific Care Program is voluntary.
