About Amputation

Amputation is the surgical removal of a part of the body, usually a leg or arm.
Approximately 5 – 6,000 major amputations are undertaken in the UK each year.
The most common cause of amputation is loss of blood supply to the affected limb, known as critical ischaemia, accounting for 70% of all lower limb amputations.
More than half of the amputations carried out are in those over the age of 70, with men being twice as likely as women to require an amputation.
