Prosthetic Rehabilitation


Prosthetic Rehabilitation

Achieving your lifestyle goals

At Ledbrook Clinic we have a truly multi-disciplinary team (MDT) approach to prosthetic rehabilitation centred on the amputee or limb deficient patient, and if necessary their carers.

Dr Jeff Lindsay, the Consultant in Rehabilitation Medicine co-ordinates the MDT which is managed by Gordon Wilson the Lead Prosthetist. The team varies as necessary depending on each patient’s situation but can include amongst others a Nurse Specialist, Occupational Therapist, Physiotherapist, Podiatrist/Chiropodist, Clinical Scientist and Counsellor. They will consider treatment plans which may include wound dressings, health promotion and exercise regimes, artificial limb provision, walking or upper limb training, home and wheelchair assessments, psychological support and care for the remaining limb and stump.
