Diabetes is a chronic disease that afflicts nearly 16 million Americans – more than 5% of the U.S. population. Each day there are approximately 2,200 people diagnosed with this metabolic disease, which brings with it diminished circulation and decreased nerve function. Individuals with diabetes are prone to many complications, including foot infections which, left untreated, could lead to potentially serious consequences, including amputation.
Fortunately, our team of podiatric physicians and surgeons is uniquely qualified in Diabetic Foot Management and specializes in Diabetic Limb Salvage. For this reason, it is important that all diabetic patients schedule routine appointments with their podiatric specialist so the health of their feet can be carefully monitored.
