Our Limb Health program uses preservation techniques and an expert team to care for those with vascular, diabetic, or neuromuscular issues that can put limbs at risk for amputation. Research shows that programs like ours may decrease major amputations.
Our team includes podiatrists, vascular surgeons, plastic surgeons, nurses, physical therapists, diabetes educators and vascular navigators who work together to preserve limbs. This multidisciplinary approach reduces time for vascular assessment and wound healing, and also reduces the time to final resolution, resulting in improved outcomes for our patients.
As an added convenience, our program's diagnostic testing, treatment, and education are available in the same location.
Proactive Limb Preservation
Our diagnostic tests and treatments include:
- Diagnostic imaging
- Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
- Wound care and soft tissue reconstruction
- Non-invasive vascular laboratory
- Outpatient endovascular procedures
- Diabetes Education
- Lymphedema Management
- Physical Therapy
Preventing Amputation Related to Diabetes
More people than ever before are learning to live with diabetes. However, without proper surveillance and management, diabetes can lead to an increase in lower extremity ulcers and limb loss. Amputation may be prevented and rates lowered with programs like our Limb Health program, that provides endovascular or open surgical bypass revascularization.
Education and Support
Our program has a navigator who is available to educate and assist you through your treatment. In addition, we have a diabetes support group for those with diabetes.
A physician referral is required for this program. For more information, call 864-675-4638.
