 Celebs You May Not Know Have Had Amputations


Fans of actor Dean Winters, who’s been in notable hit television shows like “Oz,” “30 Rock,” and “Law & Order: SVU,” might have never realized that he has gone through several amputations. Though not quite noticeable, Winters has had his two toes and half of his thumb amputated in 2009, after he contracted a bacterial infection. 



Speaking to Page Six, Winters shared that a bacterial infection caused him to go into cardiac arrest for more than two minutes in June 2009. Paramedics were able to revive him, but he still contracted gangrene, with Us Weekly reporting that he underwent 10 surgeries, resulting in multiple amputations. However, the Allstate insurance spokesman did reveal to Page Six that he has been “in pain” since the procedures, sharing, “I’ve got neuropathy on, you know, on a whole different level where I can’t feel my hands and my feet. But if I stepped on a pebble, it’s like I go through the roof.” He added, “Nothing you can do about it. I’ve been sucking it up because, you know, the alternative is not a place where I want to be.” Todo sobre plantas: cuidados, tipos, trucos Todo sobre plantas



Though constantly in pain, Winters’ acting career has continued on. In June 2021, Deadline reported he will be in Peacock’s drama series “Joe Exotic,” which follows the criminal case of Joe Exotic, the infamous big cat zookeeper.
