Services Offered

1. Diabetic Foot Assessment

Comprehensive Evaluation: Our approach begins with a detailed examination of each patient's foot health, assessing both vascular supply and neurological function. This evaluation helps in detecting early signs of neuropathy or poor circulation, common in diabetic patients.

Risk Stratification: We classify patients based on their risk of developing foot ulcers using a systematic approach that considers factors like previous foot ulcers, presence of neuropathy, and foot deformities. This stratification guides the frequency and intensity of follow-up visits and interventions.

Personalized Care Plans: Based on the assessment and risk stratification, we develop individualized care plans tailored to each patient's specific needs, which may include recommendations for protective footwear, specific wound care protocols, and regular monitoring schedules.

2. Wound Care Management

Advanced Wound Care Techniques: We utilize modern wound care practices including the application of bioengineered tissues, negative pressure wound therapies, and advanced dressing materials that promote healing and reduce the risk of infection.

Debridement: This critical procedure involves the removal of dead or infected tissue to improve the healing potential of the remaining healthy tissue. Our clinic employs several debridement techniques, tailored to the severity and depth of the wound.

Infection Control: Managing infections is paramount in diabetic wound care. We use a combination of topical and systemic antibiotics, tailored to the specific bacteria identified through wound cultures, ensuring targeted and effective treatment.

3. Preventive Care

Education: Our clinic provides comprehensive education programs on foot care for diabetic patients, focusing on daily routines that prevent foot complications. These include proper washing techniques, regular inspection, and immediate reporting of changes in foot color, temperature, or pain.

Footwear Guidance: Proper footwear can significantly reduce the risk of ulcers by minimizing areas of excessive pressure. We offer guidance on selecting the right footwear and custom orthotics that provide support and distribute pressure evenly.

Regular Follow-Ups: Regular check-ups are critical in the preventive strategy. These appointments allow for early identification of potential problems and adjustments to treatment plans as needed.

4. Multidisciplinary Approach

Collaboration: Effective management of diabetic foot issues requires a team approach. Our specialists collaborate closely to ensure that each aspect of care is addressed, from blood sugar control to precise surgical interventions.

Integrated Treatment Plans:Our treatment plans integrate medical management of diabetes, podiatric care, nutritional counseling, and physical therapy to enhance overall outcomes and reduce the risk of amputation.
