The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates there are nearly 2 million amputees living in the U.S., and more than 500 Americans lose a limb each day. The state of California is currently home to 10% of all amputees in the nation. There are approximately 5,000-6,000 amputees in the Sacramento area.

Individuals who have experienced limb loss typically fall into 3 main categories. First, are those who have lost their limb due to vascular disease i.e. diabetes. This is the largest segment at 55%. In the U.S., over 10% of the population have been diagnosed with diabetes. 4% of those will end up with some level of amputation. The second group of potential patients at 43% is traumatic amputations. The third group of potential patients at 2% is amputation caused by bone cancer. Once the cancer is removed from these patients, they generally regain their energy and zeal for life and are excited about regaining their active lifestyle. We appeal to these patients by helping them regain their desired activity level through the latest technology and advancements in the prosthetic field.

You Are Not Alone!

At Thrive we provide amputee coaching and peer support. Our amputee coaches play an important role in helping our amputee community navigate through the steps following limb loss.

One of the most important aspects of our coaching staff is that we are all amputees and have been through what most patients will go through on their journey as an amputee. As amputee coaches we have found that early introductions are important to help eliminate some of the fears associated with an amputation.
