Diabetic Foot Management

Regular foot exams are a critical step in avoiding diabetic foot complications and amputation

Approximately 30 million people (or 1 out of every 11 people) have diabetes in the United States today. Often, the feet can reveal initial warning signs such as loss of feeling, redness, tingling, swelling, or non-healing wounds. Making at least two appointments a year to have your feet examined is a critical step in avoiding diabetic foot complications and amputation.

Custom Orthotics

To relieve pressure from an ulcer and help it heal, our podiatric doctor can create custom custom-fit orthotic shoe inserts specially designed for your needs.

Orthotics are custom-made medical devices prescribed by a foot and ankle surgeon. These specialized shoe inserts support and align the feet and lower extremities. Pain reduction, pressure re-distribution, and injury prevention are all common reasons people wear orthotics.

While over-the-counter (OTC) orthotics are readily available in many stores, they are made to cater to a wider range of people. Some patients may get relief using such OTC devices; however, they are often inadequate in that they do not provide sufficient support, shock absorption, or a proper fit. Custom orthotics are produced specifically for your feet, and can better address the needs of each patient.

Whether you are newly diagnosed or have been living with the disease for years, our providers are happy to evaluate you and help you tackle the challenges of the diabetic foot.
