The Diabetic Foot Institute's primary focus is the health and well-being of their patients, both during and after their treatment.  An interactive and educational atmosphere helps to ensure that you will continue with a more knowledgeable, healthy lifestyle and prevent lower extremity damage in the future.  This interactive patient-physician relationship stems from our experienced medical staff's commitment to compassionate carethe unwavering dedication to providing individualized, personal attention tailored to your specific needs and concerns.  We believe that compassionate care is the first step to providing the highest quality treatment and the fasting healing period.

Diabetic patients often suffer from peripheral neuropathy, a condition in which retained sugars break down peripheral nerves (like those in the feet), causing the skin to become numb, but leaving the deep nerves intact.  An unsteady gait often develops because peripheral nerves are not sending proper signals to muscles, causing small injuries.  Developing injuries (like ulcers) often go undetected, resulting in a painful tingling sensation felt only by the deep nerves.  The Diabetic Foot Institute works to prevent lower extremity damage from conditions like peripheral neuropathy by evaluation inefficienciesin your walk that may make your feet prone to injury, identifying areas of concern under the skin, and detecting areas of poor blood circulation long before they become ulcerations or calluses.

The Diabetic Foot Institute offers ground-breaking treatment methods that allow diabetic foot ulcers to be cured more effectively than ever before, leading to more satisfying results and a much shorter recovery period.
