Diabetic Foot Conditions

We discuss diabetic foot conditions and why accurate diagnosis and proper treatment is so critical.

Our nationally recognized foot and ankle specialists understand the special circumstances involved with treating the feet of diabetics.

 

We have decades of combined experience treating diabetic foot conditions including Charcot foot, diabetic neuropathy, ulcers and infections.

 

The physicians at University Foot and Ankle Institute offer state of the art diabetic care, helping to reduce complications and improving long-term foot health.

 

Many diabetic patients aren't aware of the serious health risk posed by minor foot conditions. Early treatment of such conditions can prevent further complications.

  • Charcot Foot, a very serious threat to diabetics, is a bone weakening and disintegration condition that can result in deformity and disability.

  • Diabetic foot ulcers are by far the most-common complication of diabetes and it's imperative to seek prompt and proper medical attention.

  • Osteomyelitis is an infection of the bone that often develops due to an open and neglected sore that develops into an infection.

  • Diabetic neuropathy begins with a change in sensation in the hands and feet, a numbness and tingling feeling that usually begins in the feet.

  • Catching diabetic foot conditions early allows for proper intervention and prevention of further complications. Read what to expect during the exam.

    Dr. B gave me excellent advisement regarding several bruised toe nails on my right foot. His assistant Alex trimmed my toe nails. I was a little scared at first, but he had very good technique and it didn't hurt at all.
