IU School of Medicine works towards preventing limb loss

Indiana ranks as one of the worst states in current limb amputation rates. Based on the recent data from Dartmouth Atlas, the rate of amputation in Indiana was 0.69 per 1,000 Medicare enrollees. Based on the geographical distribution of the amputees for 2014-2018 in Indiana, counties in Western parts of the state have higher rates of amputation. The demographics of Indiana’s amputees are, 68.26% are male, 73.76% are whites, 14.67% are black, 2.6% are Hispanic. Conditions such as peripheral artery disease and diabetes account for the majority of nontraumatic amputations. Limb loss is much more common than many people realize, and the numbers are growing. Losing a limb can be not only physically painful, but can also be detrimental to the mental health of the patients and can make life difficult for their families. Indiana University School of Medicine is hoping to lower the number of amputations in Indiana through its limb preservation program.
