Bill — Physical Therapy Patient Story​​

Bill’s life was turned upside down when he received the news that he was going to have his right leg amputated above the knee. The 65-year-old avid hunter and fisherman had suffered from compartment syndrome due to a blood clot that prevented blood flow to his leg.

Following discharge from the hospital, Bill was unable to walk without assistance and realized he’d have to reinvent himself if he was going to get back to working in his wood shop and doing other activities that he enjoys.


“Initially, I was very unsure and a bit fearful,” he shared. “I didn’t want to be a burden on anyone but I really wasn’t sure how I was going to manage.”

Bill was referred to Dan Corso at the UPMC Centers for Rehab Services’ Butler - North Main Street location.

“Dan and his team help me understand what I’m doing and, more importantly, why I’m doing a certain exercise,” said Bill. “I trust them and can tell they really care about me. They’re a really good crew and are always willing to help.”

Bill’s recovery process will take some time but he takes in faith in knowing that he is at the right place and he’s doing what it will take to reach his goals.

“I have and will continue to recommend Dan and UPMC CRS to everyone and anyone.”
