Sometimes it is necessary for a surgeon to amputate a limb or part of the body, where to do so would save life or greater injury. However, occasionally tragically, amputation is required as a result of :
• Surgical error or trauma
• Infection and poor infection management
• Poor treatment or care ie Diabetes
Amputation is often a life changing event and in many cases, patients struggle both physically and psychologically to cope. Many patients feel anger at the fact that their situation was caused by substandard treatment.
