Citation Excerpt: 109th Congress, Conference Report 108-622, Pages 363, 366, and 367. Ongoing combat operations have produced a surge from 3 to 6 percent in complex combat injuries involving amputations of major limbs. The Military Amputee Patient Care Program headquartered at Walter Reed Army Medical Center provides a center of expertise for state-of-the-art treatment, the rehabilitation of military amputee patients to the highest level of physical function, and a return to active duty if possible. The conferees commend the Army and those associated with this vital effort. The onferees recommend an additional $19,200,000 over the budget request for this program. This includes $7,800,000 for operating costs associated with the center, including but not limited to personnel, equipment, patient travel, and prosthetic device costs; and $10,000,000 for prosthetic limb development and increased clinical and applied collaborative research in prosthetic care. Finally, the conferees provide an additional $1,400,000 for procurement of support equipment to enhance the new facility at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
