Suffering from Diabetic Foot ?

If you are a diabetic, the doctor would tell you to take care of your feet specifically.

This is because you are more prone to foot problems than others, that develop due to prolonged periods of high blood sugar levels.

Diabetic neuropathy and peripheral vascular disease are the two main foot problems that occur, and both can have serious complications. Check with your vascular specialist Today to ensure your feet receives proper care that it deserves.

Please prove you are human by selecting the House.

What are the most common signs and symptoms?

Please look for any of these symptoms like loss of feeling at the extremities (tips of toes and fingers), numbness or tingling sensation, blisters, skin discoloration and fluctuating blood sugar levels. In diabetic neuropathy, nerves are damaged that leads to numbness in the feet. During peripheral vascular disease, blood flow is reduced which can lead to pain, infection and wounds that heal slowly.

What are the treatment options for this disease?

If not treated in time, surgical options may be required which include removal of decaying tissue, surgical stabilization and even an arterial bypass. Our vascular surgeon engages in multi disciplinary approach depending upon the condition.

An advanced technology involving  oxygen hyperbaric chamber for Diabetic Foot is utilized which involves exposing the body to 100% oxygen at a pressure that is greater than normal. This in turn expedites wound’s healing as they need more oxygen comparatively. These are day procedures and you can expect to be discharged at the soonest, depending upon your condition and complications (like high/low blood pressure, thyroid etc.), if any.

Regenerative therapies like the following in addition can speed up the healing process in the least possible time.

  • TMR: Therapeutic magnetic resonance is done on diabetic foot for faster healing and focused removel of ulcer and prevent any serious infections, hospitalization and lower extremity amputations.
  • CGF: Your body is the best possible solution for regerative therapies wherein cell proliferation occurs which thereby reduces inflammation.
  • Oxygen chamber: In this case, the air pressure is increased to three times higher than normal air pressure and as a result, lungs can gather more oxygen than would be possible breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure.
