It is hard to assess the full economic loss of an amputation. Unlike injuries that heal, an amputation requires its victim to relearn everyday tasks and adapt to a new life. While an amputee can live a productive and happy life, it will be a life that inevitably will change.

The High Cost of an Amputation
