Management of diabetic foot and limb preservation

The Diabetic Foot and Limb Preservation Center provides a systematic approach to the diabetic foot from preventative and treatment perspectives in a unique clinical setting. Our multidisciplinary team is led by highly regarded podiatric surgeons and vascular surgeons on the medical staff who create individualized treatment plans to achieve quality patient outcomes.

The Center is dedicated to the functional preservation of the lower extremity. Its mission is to rapidly heal a patient's wound without affecting the functionality of the limb, as well as prevent a major amputation. The Center uses advanced diagnostic, surgical and wound care modalities to heal difficult-to-heal wounds, however, the scope of the Center goes far beyond chronic wound care. Patient care is focused on limb preservation, which ultimately saves the patient's life. Treatment is tailored to the individual patient and to each patient's specific wound with the goal of healing it as quickly as possible.
