Diabetics are especially prone to foot problems that can quickly become serious…even life threatening. To protect NuHealth’s patients, we include a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine on the multidisciplinary care teams at The Zaki Hossain Center for Hypertension, Diabetes & Vascular Disease. Our podiatrists treat a range of problems that are prevalent among diabetics, including:
- Diabetic Ulcers (the leading condition requiring foot amputation)
- Diabetic Neuropathy
- Peripheral Nerve Damage
- Peripheral Artery Occlusion
- Poor wound healing
We offer a comprehensive diabetic foot care program including screenings, preventative medicine, and treatment of diabetes-related foot problems. We also provide special services such as diabetic shoes, custom braces, off-loading devices, and custom foot orthotics.
To make an appointment for a podiatric examination or treatment, please call (516) 486-6862.
