The Diabetic Foot & Limb Preservation Center is a unique wound care program focused on the foot and ankle through Outpatient Services at Baylor Scott & White The Heart Hospital Plano. This specialized hospital department treats foot and ankle non-healing wounds with an emphasis on the diabetic foot ulcer. The multidisciplinary team is led by our Medical Director, board certified both in Podiatric Medicine & Surgery and in Wound Care. The Center provides both medical and surgical wound healing interventions.
The Center is dedicated to the functional preservation of the lower extremity. Its mission is to prevent major amputations through rapid wound healing following evidence-based medicine and proven research. Quality patient outcomes, through measurable healing rates, are significantly better than the national average, especially for diabetic foot ulcers.
The scope of the Center goes far beyond chronic wound care. A comprehensive approach is used to prevent wound development through surveillance, education, and dietitian services. This ultimately improves quality of life, increases longevity, and keeps patients active.
