Foot and Leg Infection Patient - Podiatrist, Valley Stream and Lake Success, NY - Wound Care
Patient discusses Foot and Leg Infections treated by the Long Island Podiatry Group.
"The incidence of diabetes is increasing at an alarming rate" states Dr. Caprioli, Chief of Podiatry at LIJ. "There will be an estimated 18.5 million diabetics in the U.S. by the year 2000." As members of the American Association of Diabetes Educators, we are acutely aware of the consequences of this devastating disease." As podiatrists, we are constantly faced with the struggle to save feet and limbs from gangrene, ulceration and infection. By providing preventative medicine and patient education, diabetics can greatly reduce their risk for limb and foot amputation. Unfortunately, the effects of diabetes are multi-system and can not be completely controlled.
With a variety of specialists located at one site, there is no longer any need for multiple visits to different doctors. A support system is available for wound care treatment, and if needed, arrangements can be made for home nursing care. Additional information may be obtained by calling 718-470-8787 or 516-470-8787.
