An amputation represents a real ordeal for the person who will have to overcome the loss of a limb and face long months of rehabilitation. It is most often carried out following arterial insufficiency.

As paramedical professionals, we see in our daily practice a physical and psychological suffering for amputee patients. In spite of our skills acquired through training and professional experience, we are unable to offer comprehensive care for these patients and therefore feel that we are offering incomplete care. A multidisciplinary care, including a medical and paramedical team, would seem to us to be more appropriate for patients with lower limb amputations.

Following this observation, we would like to highlight the interest for the patient and the care team to include a psychologist and a physiotherapist in the care offer to evaluate the improvement of the physical and emotional state of the amputee patient.
