Phantom Limb (English)

Did you know that…..

Ambroise Paré , a sixteenth century surgeon, was the first to note the frequent occurrence of the phantom limb following amputation ?

It also occur following removal of other body protuberances such as the nose, eyes, nipples, penis and breasts.

He noted that the person perceives the amputation limb as a whole extremity ; the phantom limb is experienced as a reality.
