In 2005 there were an estimated 1.6 million individuals in the United States living with limb loss. This number has been projected to more than double by 2050 to 3.6 million, making an understanding of management of the individual with amputation essential for the physiatrist. This article highlights common complications following amputation and discusses the approach to evaluation, treatment, and developing management strategies to ensure optimal functional outcomes for this population of patients.
