diabetic foot problems
Diabetics frequently develop problems. The condition causes nerve damage, which mutes pain signals. In addition, blood flow problems can delay healing. This can lead to infections, ulcers and, sometimes, amputations. The wisest course for diabetics is to care for their feet, to check them daily and to seek medical care quickly for even the smallest cut or blister. Diabetics also may suffer foot deformities that can lead to fractures and bone disintegration. Our medical staff is well aware of diabetic foot conditions and the need for prompt effective treatment. Individuals suffering from diabetes will find that the experts at the Orthopaedic Institute can serve an important role on their health care team.
