Information for Health Care Providers
The Limb Preservation Foundation supports a wide range of healthcare providers as they guide patients who have lost a limb or are at risk of limb loss on their journey to recovery. In addition to partnering with physicians, we also work with physical therapists, psychiatrists, occupational therapists, case workers, patient navigators, physician assistants, prosthetists and practice managers, connecting their patients to essential resources.
Our provider resources are supported by Rise Prosthetics
HOW WE SUPPORT PATIENTS FACING LIMB LOSS
The services we provide to patients include:
- Financial assistance Since its founding, the foundation has provided more than $2 million to patients to cover critical living expenses and medical costs.
- Peer support Our peer support program matches patients with individuals who have lost limbs or faced limb-threatening conditions, offering emotional and social support, mentorship and an empathetic ear as they navigate through treatment.
- Resource Directory Our resource directory offers links and information for a range of topics, from prosthetics to where to find help for those who are underinsured.
- Social connection The foundation’s goal is to help patients feel less isolated while undergoing treatment. Our programs offer the opportunity to connect with others who are coping with similar issues.
HOW WE ASSIST PROVIDERS
Beyond serving patients, we also aim to assist providers by delivering education and access to research.
Our offerings include:
- Educational symposiums where physicians and other providers can share information and insight.
- Research The foundation funds cutting-edge clinical and laboratory research on bond cancer to improve treatment protocols.
- Networking opportunities Our goal is to provide the chance for providers to exchange ideas in an informal setting.
- Product innovation forums We work with manufacturers to ensure providers are aware of the latest product developments for patients with limb loss.
