Did you know Preventative Care by Podiatrists Saves $2 Billion Each Year!
Podiatrists are often the first to diagnose lower extremity circulatory problems that may be caused by diabetes and their expertise is critical in the fight against amputations in diabetic patients. The increase in diabetes will surely mean an increase in lower limb amputations related to the disease, and care by a podiatrist in patients with diabetes can potentially result in significant direct health care cost savings.
Preventative care by a podiatrist prior to the first evidence of foot ulcers in patients with diabetes prevents or delays lower extremity amputations and hospitalizations. Preventative care by today's podiatrist can not only save limbs and lives, it can bring significant savings.
