Limb Trauma Clinic
Are you a lawyer or case manager working with a client who has sustained a catastrophic limb injury?
Research proves that people who begin rehabilitation early achieve better clinical outcomes. Not just physically, but psychologically too, improving long term reintegration into life.
What is the Limb Trauma Clinic (LTC)?
A LTC assessment provides your client with a comprehensive strategy to support the foundation of their rehabilitation right from the outset of an injury.
We know that having an early focus on rehabilitation, following a serious limb injury, enables patients to acquire the strength, skills, and psychological strategy for preventing, or preparing, for an amputation, if that is ultimately considered the best solution.
It is a Consultant in Rehabilitation Medicine led multidisciplinary team (MDT) clinical assessment, ideally suited if limb salvage or amputation is being considered. The team considers all avenues in a timely manner, at one appointment.
The Consultant will advise on limb salvage options (if appropriate), as well as possible amputation level, techniques, potential post operative problems, pain management and medication.
An orthotist or a prosthetist will respectively advise about suitable orthotic and/or prosthetic interventions, along with a specialist physiotherapist who will advise and inform any associated therapy.
Together the MDT will outline their rehabilitation recommendations, to form a rehabilitation pathway for the next 12-18 months, in a joint clinical report.
