Re-attaching amputated limbs

The Denver Clinic for Extremities at Risk provides care for patients with traumatic amputations. Our replant surgeons are fellowship trained in microvascular & hand surgery. They are able to re-attach traumatic upper extremity amputations. When a patient has an injury that can be managed by our replant team, the triage coordinator will work with the referring facility to assure the patient is transferred to Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center and the replant team is in place when the patient arrives. The toll free number, 800-262-LIMB (5462), is answered 24 hours a day.
