At Texas Prosthetic Systems (TPS), we believe that support is the key to a successful journey with your new life as an amputee. While amputation is a life-changing event, it is not a life-ending event. You will be able to get back to your normal life; you’ll find your ‘new normal’.
Losing a part of your body requires both physical and emotional adjustments. While some people experience relief from the stress and pain of trying to save the limb, it is very common to feel a range of emotions after an amputation.
One of the best ways to combat the emotional difficulties that come with amputation is to reach out and find amputee support groups. We have put together a list of some great organizations that provide support and care to amputees and their families.
The mission of DAN is to foster an active network of people that will benefit everyone to some degree, not only by providing moral support, but also through a service-oriented source of information and communication for all amputees and family members. Learn more
