This exclusive clinic, which aims to cater to diabetics with all types of problems that happen in their feet, was launched in the presence of the Sakra management, Dr Rajendra S, Dr Maheshwarappa, along with other consultants.
Foot problems due to diabetes is a common phenomenon which can result in damaging the toe, foot, amputation of leg or even loss of life in some cases. Increased blood sugar level can cause nerve damage in the feet which can cause loss of feeling, changes in the shape in the feet and foot ulcers that may take time to heal, causing discomfort to the patient. Owing to loss of feeling, diabetics may become prone to foot injuries that may cause infections and ulcers, and ultimately require amputation if left untreated.
“Diabetic foot and wound care is not any ordinary problem and needs utmost care, correct diagnosis and timely treatment. With complete end-to-end care, problems such as ulceration on the bottom of the feet or poor blood circulation can be managed and treated well. At Sakra’s Comprehensive Diabetic Foot & Would Care Clinic, we aim to render superior continuum of care to diabetic patients to ensure that they lead an improved quality of life,” said Dr Rajendra S, Senior Consultant & Head – Department of Plastic Surgery, Sakra World Hospital.
