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.
