  • Amputation

    Losing a limb due to injury or disease is a devastating problem. Unfortunately, many surgeons focus on the cause of the amputation and don’t put enough thought and care into the amputation stump. Dr. Ben Brown focuses on the function of the remaining limb because that is your new leg.

    A properly formed amputation is the first step in getting people walking (and hopefully running) again.  A poorly performed amputation is fraught with complications and time spent on crutches or in a wheelchair.

    Dr. Brown has published extensively on how to properly perform a lower extremity amputation.  He works closely with local prosthetists to get people back to life on their new prosthesis as soon as possible.
