The goal of Burke’s Orthopedic Rehabilitation Program is to return you home ready to resume an active, productive lifestyle following orthopedic injury or surgery. Most of our patients return home within one or two weeks. We serve adolescent through elderly patients with diagnoses such as joint arthroplasty, knee replacement, hip resurfacing, lower extremity fracture, and multiple traumas.
The goal of Burke's Amputee Rehabilitation Program is to speed your healing, restore your confidence and provide you with the skills to return home and live as independently as possible after an amputation.
The two-phase program begins immediately following surgery. In the first phase, focus is on pain control, healing, emotional support and preparing the limb for prosthesis. A prosthetist -- a professional who assesses, designs, measures, fabricates and fits various types of upper and lower extremity prostheses is available at Burke through the amputee rehabilitation program. The prosthetist may be involved in the education and training in regarding the use, care and function of the prosthesis.
