Our team also offers Targeted Muscle Reinnervation (TMR) surgery. This is an innovative procedure that can reduce post-amputation nerve pain by reconnecting amputated nerves to nearby nerves and muscle targets. It can also help you manage your prosthetics with natural muscle movement.

Our team can perform TMR at the same time as a planned amputation. We can also do TMR if you’ve had an amputation in the last 10 years.
