Steven was an active family man living on a farm who discovered he needed a lower leg amputation to treat his osteomyelitis, an infection in his bone.
After his amputation, Steven needed a skilled nursing facility that could treat his wounds while providing him with extensive therapies to help him learn to walk again with the new prosthetic.
Steven came into Heartland at ProMedica limited to his wheelchair and unsure how he was going to ever learn to walk again with a new prosthetic leg. The nursing staff were able to work with Steven to help control his pain while monitoring his new amputation, while the therapy team helped Steven reach his goal of learning to walk on his own again.
