What We Do
We are passionate about our mission. Our passion for finding new treatments for limb threatening conditions and for supporting patients who have been diagnosed with a condition that could lead to limb loss is supported by the key activities of the foundation.
The Limb Preservation Foundation
Provides Education on Limb Threatening Conditions
When diagnosed with a disease that can lead to limb loss it is natural to want to find out everything you can about the disease. The Limb Preservation Foundation is the leading resource for information about these conditions, including diagnosis and treatment approaches.
Funds Research focused on treatment options, establishing best practices and reducing unnecessary limb loss.
The Foundation identifies and funds research focused on reducing unnecessary amputation and loss of life due to trauma or disease. The investment today in this research may lead to new treatment options for patients faced with an extremity at risk.
Assists Patients with Financial Challenges as they go through treatment of limb threatening problems.
Being diagnosed with a limb threatening problem is a stressful situation. Often patients and families experience the added stress of financial difficulties while going through treatment. The patient assistance programs established by the Limb Preservation Foundation have hundreds of patients, assisting with expenses such as rent, travel, utilities and food, attempting to minimize some of the impact of the diagnosis.
