Amputation

Amputation injuries are permanent injuries that may result in lifelong disability. An amputation, by definition, is the loss of a body part, usually a finger, hand, or arm, or a toe, foot, or leg. Traumatic amputation injuries occur when the limb is wholly or partially severed in an accident. Amputation can also be surgically performed when a limb cannot be spared due to serious injuries. Victims of traumatic amputation are at risk for serious complications, including bleeding, infection, shock, and death.

Amputation injuries can cause disability and a loss of in quality of living. Amputations, like other life-changing tragedies, cause emotional and psychological injuries. Scarring and disfigurement may decrease self-confidence and self esteem. Coping with and adjusting to the loss of a limb can be difficult. Post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, grief, and depression are all associated psychological injuries of amputations.
