Cosi Belloso’s dedication to working with amputees started during her formative years working as a newly-graduated PT under the mentorship of Curtis Clark at Jackson Memorial Hospital (JMH). Within the setting of JMH’s world-class facilities, she became familiar with the special challenges facing people with limb loss/ deficiencies, from Symmes patients to bilateral above knee amputees. She found her passion in helping these individuals from the immediate pre and post-op care period all the way to full independence with their prosthetics legs.
As time went on, she wanted to be able to reach the amputee community even more, creating a platform to have a voice and bring awareness, knowledge and care with “Cosi Talks!” which is a live feed show that happens every Wednesday evening at 8:30pm EST on Facebook.
TMR is not a treatment option for patients with spinal cord injuries, brachial plexus injuries, or who are generally not healthy enough for surgery. The procedure does present typical risks of surgery. Patients may experience a temporary increase in pain as part of the nerve healing process. Your physician will help you determine whether TMR is right for you.
