  • APMA PRESIDENT STATES THAT INCLUDING PODIATRIC CARE FOR DIABETICS REDUCES HEALTHCARE COSTS

 

PODIATRIST AND PRESIDENT OF THE APMA (AMERICAN PODIATRIC MEDICAL ASSOCIATION), DR. FRANK SPINOSA STATES, "A MAJOR COST ASSOCIATED WITH DIABETIC MEDICAL CARE IS LOWER-LIMB AMPUTATION.  DIABETES CAN CAUSE PATIENTS TO LOSE SENSATION IN THIER EXTREMITIES, SO AN INDIVIDUAL MAY NOT IMMEDIATELY NOTICE INJURIES TO THEIR FEET.  FOR THOSE WHO HAVE DIABETES OR AT RISK FOR THE DISEASE, REGULAR CHECKUPS BY A PODIATRIST ARE ONE OF THE EASIEST WAYS TO PREVENT MOST FOOT COMPLICATIONS.  INCLUDING A PODIATRIST IN YOUR CARE CAN REDUCE AMPUTATIONS RATES BY AS MUCH AS 85%."

PODIATRIST SPINOSA ALSO STATES, "A STUDY BY THE APMA FOUND AMONG PATIENTS WITH COMMERCIAL INSURANCE, EACH $1 INVESTED IN CARE BY A PODIATRIST RESULTS IN $27 TO $51 OF SAVING FOR THE HEALTHCARE SYSTEM.  AMONG MEDICARE ELIGIBLE PATIENTS, EACH $1 INVESTED IN CARE BY A PODIATRIST RESULTS IN $9 TO $13 OF SAVINGS.  WITH PROACTIVE FOOT CARE, DIABETES PATIENTS CAN REDUCE THE RISK OF INFECTION AND AMPUTATION, IMPROVE FUNCTION AND QUALITY OF LIFE, AND REDUCE HEALTHCARE COSTS."

DR, HARDY'S TORONTO FOOT CLINIC , ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS TREATS MANY DIABETIC PATIENTS VERY SUCCESSFULLY.  AS FAR AS I KNOW WE HAVE NOT HAD ONE SINGLE CASE OF AMPUTATION ON ONE OF OUR PATIENTS YET.  ALL OF MY FOOT SPECIALISTS WHOM I EMPLOY ARE HIGHLY SKILLED AND EDUCATED TO TREAT ALL TYPES OF FOOT CONDITIONS.
