  • AUSSIE PODIATRIST STATES THAT MULTIDISCIPLINARY TEAM COULD REDUCE AMPUTATIONS

 

AUSTRALIAN PODIATRIST, PETE LAZZARINI, SENIOR RESEARCH FELLOW AT THE SCHOOL OF CLINICAL SCIENCES, QUEENSLAND UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY, STATES, "THE NUMBER OF LOWER LIMB AMPUTATIONS IN AUSTRALIAN DIABETES PATIENTS WITH FOOT DISEASE COULD BE HALVED WITH BETTER ACCESS TO MULTIDISCIPLINARY FOOT TEAM SERVICES.  ABOUT A THIRD OF THE 10,000 ANNUAL ADMISSIONS FOR DIABETES-RELATED FOOT ULCERS RESULT IN AMPUTATIONS, REPRESENTING A 30% RISE OVER THE LAST DECADE ACCORDING TIO A RECENT ARTICLE IN THE MEDICAL JOURNAL OF AUSTRALIA.  WE BELIEVE THE NUMBER OF AMPUTATIONS COULD FALL BY 50% IF THERE WERE 10 TIMES THE EXISTING 20 MULTIDISCIPLINARY FOOT TEAMS IN THE COUNTRY.  HOWEVER, THE MAJORITY OF THESE STRATEGIES HAVE BEEN BASED IN TERTIARY HOSPITAL SETTINGS, RATHER THAN COMMUNITY SETTINGS WHERE THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE WITH DIABETIC FOOT COMPLICATIONS PRESENT."

THIS SCHOOL HAPPENS TO BE WHERE MY LOVELY DAUGHTER SHANNON IS PRESENTLY STUDYING TO BECOME A PODIATRIST.

DR. HARDY'S TORONTO FOOT CLINIC HAS SUCCESSFULLY BEEN TREATING DIABETIC PATIENTS FOR MANY YEARS.  ONE OF THE CORNERSTONES OF OUR QUALITY FOOT CARE IS PROPER EDUCATION OF OUR PATIENTS.  IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE WOULD LIKE TO EXPERIENCE THE 'DR. HARDY DIFFERENCE', PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US AT 416-465-8737.
