Physiotherapists specialising in gait training also play an important part in the patients' rehabilitation and work closely with the patient as part of the multi-disciplinary team.
Prosthetics physiotherapy is an outpatient facility for assessment and rehabilitation of lower limb amputees with regards to prosthetic limb wearing. We accept referrals for patients of all ages ranging from newborn babies through to adulthood and older age. We are able to see patients pre-elective amputation on request.
In-patient amputee physiotherapy is routinely supplied on wards L15 at Leeds General Infirmary. For amputee physiotherapy input and support on other wards within the Trust contact the main prosthetics physiotherapy department.
The department is always available to accommodate allied health professionals or students to further their knowledge and experience, regarding prosthetics rehabilitation and limb wearing.
