I would like to welcome you to the webpage for the Stony Brook Limb Salvage Center. Our goal is maintaining the function and integrity of your extremities.  If you have already received any form of surgery on your extremities or your physician mentioned that you may need an amputation, in our center you can find a warm reception and a well thought out, highly skilled team treatment approach to preserve your extremity. Our approach is completely geared into one goal, to preserve what you have or avoid more loss of any part of your extremities, at any cost. We have gathered in our team compassionate and highly skilled providers that will help you all the way. We perform a comprehensive initial evaluation using the latest and most advanced testing. We offer the most up to date medical care, minimally invasive and surgical modalities necessary to achieve the best possible outcome for each and every single patient. Our center includes an accredited vascular lab, highly skilled board-certified vascular surgeons and podiatrists with the collaboration of consulting services to help you all the way. We have been treating patients from the east end, Suffolk and Nassau Counties as well as from New York City and nearby states. Our strength lies on the highly skilled and compassionate members of our center.  I am very proud to be associated with each and every member of our team, as they bring their valuable expertise for our patients.

Our expert physicians are board-certified leaders in their field.  They are dedicated to providing each patient with the most advanced treatment options available.  Our state-of-the-art technology aids in enhancing patient care by allowing us to offer our patients opportunities not available at other institutions. Opportunities such as participation in cutting-edge clinical trials that provide access to newly developed treatments and technology. It is our priority to maintain the highest level of standards and quality outcomes with one common goal, to decrease the chance of amputation and wound related complications resulting in a better quality of life for our patients. Our multidisciplinary team allows us to maintain continuity of care for our patients by collaborating with varying specialties including the Burn Center, Endocrinology, Trauma, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Dermatology, Orthopedics, and Podiatric services. Our team of physicians provide ongoing education and support to the community and healthcare providers for recognizing the early signs and symptoms of disease that may lead to wounds and possible limb loss.

You can definitely do anything you set your mind to, it takes action, it takes perseverance, it takes facing your fears, and most likely getting out of your comfort zone. - Eric, Patient of the Limb Salvage Center and member of the Amputee Support Group 

You are not alone.   We are here.   We will get through this together.

If you are facing amputation or if you have already undergone an amputation, please join us! Share your feelings and experiences, learn helpful information and gain hope. 

Joining the Amputee Support Group was the best decision I made. I have met so many people that have helped me in different areas of my limb loss. From hearing what other people have gone through and how they coped with their loss, to different devices I could use in my daily life to make things easier. - Suzette

Please join us on the second Tuesday of every month!

Detection and Prevention

Knowing when to seek help can significantly impact your treatment options. Reducing risk factors such as high blood pressure, smoking, high cholesterol and or blood sugar, coupled with a healthy lifestyle and exercise, may slow the progression of peripheral arterial disease (PAD). If you are diagnosed with PAD, you may be at risk for heart disease or stroke.  It is best to seek early medical intervention to prevent complications and limb loss.
