Common Diabetic Foot Conditions
Diabetics commonly have poor circulation, a weakened immune system and impaired nerve function in their feet. Due to this poor circulation and lack of sensation, diabetic feet are more susceptible to developing sores, and wounds which may lead to ulcers. These wounds can also progress into more serious infections that can lead to amputations, loss of limbs and even loss of life.
Dr. Kane will do a comprehensive diabetic foot evaluation using the latest technology to test and assess the circulation to your feet, and design a treatment plan specifically for you.
