Acute Rehabilitation Unit

In-stride amputee rehabilitation program

In-stride is a program at St. Anthony’s Medical Center for amputees. It focuses on:

  • selection of prosthetic services,
  • multidisciplinary follow-up, and
  • a support system for amputees.

Prosthetic selection

Amputees are provided with the information and assistance needed to make an informed decision regarding which prosthetic company will best meet their needs.

Multidisciplinary follow-up

The rehabilitation physician, prosthetist and therapist examine amputees together to assess for prosthesis readiness and check progress. Patients also may receive other services from a case manager (social worker), dietitian, diabetic educator, skin/wound nurse, recreation therapist or psychologist. This provides a convenient, comprehensive “one-stop” approach to medical care.

Support system

Often the best support is found in shared experiences. Volunteer mentors are available to visit with patients during their stay at St. Anthony’s Medical Center and after discharge. Patients are paired with a mentor who shares similar amputation/rehabilitation experiences and general interests. This frequently lasting and mutually beneficial relationship provides helpful information and support during the rehabilitation process.

Amputee support group

Education and socialization are provided for amputees and their families, friends and caregivers. Support group members need not be current or former patients at St. Anthony’s. In addition to quarterly meetings on the St. Anthony's Medical Center campus, there are meetings and activities held at various other venues. For information call 314-525-4561. For more information, visit the group's web site.
