Providing rehabilitation services for the person with an amputation has become more difficult in today's health care environment. Amputation rehabilitation calls for specialized, multidisciplinary rehabilitation training. In examining the principles of amputation rehabilitation, one must understand the lessons learned from the Veterans Affairs Amputation System of Care and return to the founding principles of rehabilitation medicine. Persons with amputations must be reevaluated in a tight program of follow-up care.
