One of the most crucial services offered by our Podiatric Surgery department is in the prevention and treatment of foot-related complications from diabetes. According to the American Podiatric Medical Association, a podiatrist can reduce the risk of lower limb amputation caused by unmanaged diabetes by 85% and the risk of hospitalization by 24%.
When left untreated, diabetes can inflict significant damage to your feet, including nerve damage, restricted blood flow, numbness, gangrene, sores, deformities and ulcers.
After a proper evaluation, a podiatrist can help you mitigate your risks for nerve damage and other complications.
