We have pioneered a pre-operative program with many surgeons where we can use our long-term relationships with our patients as a benefit to our new patients. We have a great number of amputees who volunteer to talk to people who know they are facing a possible amputation.
We are in a unique position to match people up with others in similar gender, age, or occupation/hobbies. We have witnessed significant benefits from the patient, and family being equipped with the confidence that comes from questions being answered and seeing people who have adjusted positively to similar circumstances.
