Amputation is the term used for the removal of part or all of an extremity as a result of trauma or surgery. For surgical purposes, amputations are routinely performed on a limb to control disease processes such as malignant cancerous tissues or bones, diabetic infections or gangrene. An amputation may also be performed as a means of pain control or to remove limbs that have been damaged or partially severed from a traumatic accident. Traumatic amputations may occur when a limb has been severed abruptly at the scene of an accident.
