During my hand rotation, I encountered a patient who was post-op from a digit amputation. They were smiling and laughing and it caught me by surprise. Before I would focus on the loss to the patient--the loss of fingers in one's dominant hand and the decrease in function that was to come. But there is another loss that I did not think about, a loss of chronic pain, that made me realize how much relief amputations can provide and the importance of centering medical decision making around patient values.
