Course Summary

Advances in modern medicine have improved limb salvaging in cases of extreme trauma and the potential of patients to have a good quality of life when amputation is a necessary resolution to injury. Without rapid and appropriate interventions, extremity trauma has a high incidence of morbidity. All clinicians have a vital role in the initial treatment, ongoing management, and support of patients with extremity trauma, a role that has a significant impact on each patient’s recovery and rehabilitation.
