Abstract

Amputation is much more common than people do realize. There are no statistical data on amputations in Latvia, also any guidelines for planning, organizing and providing rehabilitation services to patients after amputation. Providing a patient-friendly and comprehensive multidisciplinary treatment is the key to successful outcomes in the case of amputation. The analysis of the current situation, including patients' view, will serve as one of the steps to improve the rehabilitation of patients with unilateral lower limb amputation in Latvia
