Individuals who have amputations address a variety of daily challenges that can significantly affect their lives, including general health and wellness, mobility, independence and more. The OrthoCarolina Reconstructive Center for Lost Limbs is a multidisciplinary clinic intended to help upper extremity amputees by offering patients the latest surgical innovations and technology to help them restore maximum limb performance and live life to the fullest.
The OrthoCarolina Reconstructive Center for Lost Limbs, led by renowned hand surgeons Dr. Glenn Gaston and Dr. Bryan Loeffler, includes several healthcare providers attending each monthly clinic. New reconstructive procedures and technology are available for patients with amputations of the thumb, part of the hand, and all the way up to the shoulder.
