TOP PHOTO: Army Veteran David Janke meets with the Amputation Specialty Clinic team at VA North Texas. The Dallas VA Medical Center is one of 18 Level ll Polytrauma Amputation Network Sites within the VA to provide specialized care to our Veterans with limb loss. For Janke, this visit is a way forward to a new prosthesis, enabling easier moves around his property, walks on more rugged terrain, and managing stairs more easily. He met with a physical therapist and performed a functional evaluation to see what level of activity he could tolerate before meeting with the specialty team.
