Our Service Offerings
The Limb Preservation Centers of America team believes in keeping communities healthy, which is why we are committed to exceeding the expectations of our partners. A limb preservation center may be in the form of an office-based endovascular lab, a freestanding or hospital-based wound care/hyperbaric center, or an ambulatory surgery center. The LPCA team also offers a disease management program for payers, which focuses on saving limbs while reducing costs.
Benefits of a Limb Preservation Center
Center of Excellence
Your limb preservation center will be developed as a true Center of Excellence by following a multidisciplinary approach to care, utilizing a proven business model that improves efficiencies and outcomes, and tracking vital metrics to constantly improve.
According to Elrod and Fortenberry*, “Centers of excellence—specialized programs within healthcare institutions which supply exceptionally high concentrations of expertise and related resources centered on particular medical areas and delivered in a comprehensive, interdisciplinary fashion—afford many advantages for healthcare providers and the populations they serve.” The LPCA team will ensure the highest level of care, provided by doctors and other healthcare professionals dedicated to saving patients from unnecessary amputations.
