July 28, 2020
The M Health Fairview Amputee Clinic is a multi-disciplinary team of experts including specialty physicians such as Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, physical therapist, and prosthetist, all at one location. It is led by PM&R Dr. Wayne Hsiao, who specializes in care for amputees. The new clinic will allow patients to see the care team all at once, reducing multiple appointments and travel for the patient.
The clinic is located at M Health Fairview Clinics and Specialty Center - Maplewood. Patients can make appointments by calling 651-644-5808. The care team will:
- Identify a person’s needs and goals
- Assess their health and the health of the residual limb
- Select a prothesis and evaluate fit, function, component selection, and performance
- Assist with insurance documentation to expedite prosthesis delivery

Everything we do in this clinic will be centered around each patient and what that person wants to do, including the activities they would like to pursue and the goals that they want to achieve. - Gary Kroll, M Health Fairview Director of Prosthetics & Orthotics.
