Proven Amputation Expertise
With more than 30 years of experience, Methodist Rehabilitation Center offers the most comprehensive amputation services in Mississippi.
We provide pre-surgical assessments, post-surgical therapy and custom-designed prostheses for patients recovering from amputations as a result of trauma or illness.
Through our inpatient program, we treat adolescents and adults. And through our outpatient Methodist Orthotics & Prosthetics division, we provide outpatient care for adult, adolescent and pediatric cases.
Dr. Alyson Jones, a physical medicine and rehabilitation physician, leads our inpatient amputation team and is supported by a staff of therapists and nurses who are specially trained to help amputees recover quickly.
Dr. Philip Blount, a PM&R physician at Methodist Pain & Spine, serves in a similar role in our outpatient setting. He collaborates with therapists at MRC Outpatient Services and staff of Methodist Orthotics & Prosthetics to offer coordinated care via regularly scheduled amputee clinics on our East Campus in Flowood.
Helping patients maintain their health and independence and avoid common amputation complications is at the heart of Methodist Rehab’s amputation services.

What Sets Us Apart
Comprehensive, Coordinated Care: Inpatient/outpatient collaborations between MRC physicians, therapists and orthotics and prosthetic staff ensure patients benefit from a comprehensive approach.
Advanced Technologies. Our unique blend of training and experience puts MRC in line to be among the first providers of advanced technologies such as powered and bionic systems. We also provide early product testing for major manufacturers, giving our patients access to products even before they reach the consumer market.
Motion Analysis and Human Performance Laboratory. We can conduct evaluations in Methodist Rehabilitation Center’s Motion Analysis and Human Performance Laboratory — the only facility of its kind in Mississippi and one of only a handful in the Southeast.
Research. We recognize research is vital to the field of prosthetics and employ a researcher who also plays a role in patient care.
Warranties. We stand behind all our prosthetic products, providing warranties with replacement or repair guarantees on all sockets and other custom prosthetic devices we produce. We also honor all warranties on components manufactured by other suppliers.
Recreational and Athletic Opportunities. Patients with amputations are encouraged to take part in therapeutic recreation, and Methodist Orthotics & Prosthetics has even fielded a track team that helped at least one athlete win a silver medal in the 2012 London Paralympics.
Peer Support. Through MRC-sponsored support group meetings and the counsel of MRC staff who have also experienced limb loss, new amputees receive advice on how to adjust to their new reality.
