An amputation is the removal by surgery of all or part of a limb such as a foot, leg, arm, hand, toe, or finger. It is estimated that more than 1.7 million Americans are living with amputations.
Amputations are caused unintentionally under many different circumstances, including as the result of work accidents, car accidents, and by malfunctioning or defective machines. Intentional amputations are procedures to remove a limb due to many causes, such as a severe injury suffered earlier requiring surgical amputation, diabetes, or another serious medical condition.
