Welcome to the only web site specifically dedicated to the high pelvic levels of amputation, HemiPelvectomy and Hip-Disarticulation.
As the least common lower extremity amputations, most of us have existed in isolation. Even within existing amputee support groups, chances are you’ve never had the opportunity to meet or talk to another in the same situation. New amputees and their family members have had no single comprehensive source of information on dealing with this level of amputation. With public access to the Internet, this is changing.
The purpose of this web site is:
This is an open forum; all hemipelvectomy,
hip-disarticulations, and their family members are welcome to participate and
share their personal experience and opinions. The advice and knowledge of
interested Prosthetists, Doctors, Physical and Occupational Therapists,
Psychologists and all other related professionals are invited and appreciated.159,141
