Before you have an amputation, you owe it to yourself to have a second opinion.

Nurse with patient

A variety of underlying disease states can threaten limb loss and amputation, including diabetes, peripheral vascular disease, kidney failure and other conditions. Timely diagnosis allows selection of appropriate medical, endovascular and surgical intervention, to give the best chances of preventing amputation. Preserving limbs and the ability to walk is critical to maintaing personal autonomy and dignity. The Methodist Limb Preservation Network is comprised of a group of physicians who are dedicated to limb preservation. Our multidisciplinary approach is designed to correct underlying disease states, optimize intervention and develop new techniques for limb preservation.

Our Mission

Doctor with patient

The Methodist Limb Preservation Network is dedicated to preserving limbs and thereby independent walking and lifestyle, to optimally treat underlying conditions and to prevent recurrence or progression of limb threatening diseases.

Principles: A multispecialty approach is crucial to the best possible outcomes for limb preservation. A standardized approach with wound care, medical evaluation, revascularization, and foot care individualized to each patient provide the best outcomes possible.

Our Guiding Principle is that maximal limb preservation can only be achieved when an evaluation is performed by dedicated doctors with expertise in endovascular procedures, open bypass, wound care and current cell and gene therapies, and personalized to treat your problem.
