The case load is mixed and the range of reasons for amputation includes Vascular Disease and Diabetes, Trauma, Sepsis, Oncology and others. The age range of our patients ranges from 18 years and over. The caseload is therefore challenging but extremely rewarding and allows for variety on a daily basis.
The ARU provides specialist care and rehabilitation for amputee patients with varying levels of functional ability.
Our patients will stay at the ARU and receive therapy every day in our indoor gym and also use our fantastic landscaped gardens outside along with community access visits.
The ARU promotes independence and patients are challenged daily to meet their goals designed by the Multi Disciplinary Team. We provide an enabling care approach and work closely with the MDT.
We have strong links to Guy's and St Thomas' acute services and provide high standards of specialist care including;
Complex wound management including Vac Therapy and debridement
Diabetes specialist care
