Diabetic Foot Care
Diabetics are susceptible to severe and problematic foot wounds that in a worst-case scenario may require all or part of a foot to be amputated. This is why it is so important to have a diabetic foot specialist to help you manage your foot care if you have diabetes – and in fact, increased awareness and proper foot care have led to a substantial reduction in the number of patients who have had to undergo amputation over the past two decades. Dr. Fine at the Podiatry Institute in Palm Harbor specializes in diabetic foot care and can advise you on the best ways to avoid foot complications if you are diabetic. In regular checkups, he will also closely inspect your feet for indications of nerve damage and other issues.
If you’ve been diagnosed with diabetes, be sure to sign up with one of Florida’s best podiatric specialists who can help you to avoid unnecessary foot complications. Set up an appointment with Dr. Fine by calling 727.645.0720, or fill out an appointment request form today.
