Learn. Share. Live.

Sharing experiences, challenges, and fears with others can reveal solutions, hope, and new possibilities.

Beyond clinical care, we connect people to one another through AMPOWER®, the largest peer-to-peer support program and online community for people with limb loss or limb difference.

The mission of AMPOWER is to empower and strengthen those affected by amputation or limb difference through peer mentorship, education, and community. It consists of a nationwide network of trained peer mentors who have successfully recovered and rehabilitated following amputation and want to share their personal experiences with you. 

AMPOWER peer mentors can connect with you and your loved ones in person, over the phone, or online. They can help:

  • Answer a range of basic questions about the recovery process, using a prosthesis, and the concerns of daily living
  • Provide emotional support, with a firsthand understanding of the grieving process
  • Share information and resources
