Michelle Lundy patient success story


Born with spina bifada and severe scoliosis, Michelle Lundy has undergone more than 80 surgeries to keep her pain-free and functioning to the best of her ability. At just 40 years old, she’s lost her ability to walk in part due to her legs being amputated because of bone infection; however, the team at Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Northwest Tucson is helping her on her journey to walk again. The team is focusing on rebuilding her strength so she’ll be able to use her new prosthetic legs and take her first steps.

“Even if it’s short distances, I don’t care as long as it gets me out of the chair and I’m walking and it gives me something to look forward to, that’s what I’m going to do,” stated Lundy.
