It’s hard to imagine losing a limb. But for more than 500 Americans every day, it’s a reality.
There are two million people living with limb loss in the United States right now. For those who have lost a limb, the main causes are vascular disease (including diabetes and peripheral arterial disease), trauma and cancer. That’s why we care about Limb Loss Awareness Month and letting the Chattanooga community know we are here to help!
University Surgical Associates Prosthetics (USAP) provides patients and their families a single source for support during the process of amputation, selection of prosthesis, and ongoing care of the device throughout its lifetime. Our goal is to help support and empower those affected by limb loss to reach their full potential.
What makes our care different? USAP has worked with more than 800 patients since the group was formed in 2009. Our certified prosthetists work with the area’s top surgeons highly experienced in amputation. We also work closely with your physical therapist every step of the way.
