The Amputee Website is dedicated to encouraging and empowering amputees. Connect today for more ideas, inspiration and information.
There are more than 1 million annual limb amputations globally.
Among those living with limb loss, the main causes are vascular disease (54%) – including diabetes and peripheral arterial disease – trauma (45%) and cancer (less than 2%)
Purpose of the site
On this site we tell stories about people who have undergone limb amputations.
The stories we tell help to bring all people together.
