Individuals with diabetes mellitus sometimes develop foot pathologies. Detecting early signs or symptoms can prevent the development of complications. To reduce the impact of this disease we take a multidisciplinary care approach to treatment. This approach has enabled many patients to retain their mobility despite their on-going treatments.


In diabetics, high blood sugar levels, elevated cholesterol, smoking, and high blood pressure, can clog the arteries and/or reduce nervous sensation, particularly in the feet. Loss of sensation and wound healing problems can lead to a variety of complications, such as ulcers, infection or changes in bone structure. These complications primarily occur when the diabetes has not been properly controlled for several years.



In such cases, it is vital to prevent soft tissue problems and bone deformity. This requires regular patient visits to a specialized podiatrist who can intervene before more serious complications occur.
