More than 12,000 Californians lost limbs or toes to diabetes in 2016, state data show. “Most of those amputations are unnecessary,” said Alexander Reyzelman, DPM, co-director of the UCSF clinic that saves legs with procedures to increase blood flow. Amputation can cause as many health problems as it solves, according to Dr. Reyzelman: “When you lose a leg to amputation, 50 to 70% of patients will die within five years. You don’t want to lose a leg.”
 
Drs. Alexander Reyzelman and David Armstrong

The increase in diabetes and the threat of amputation are “a silent, sinister crisis,” said Dr. David Armstrong, a podiatric surgeon teaching at the University of Southern California’s Keck School of Medicine. “The problem is getting bigger and bigger, and you can’t fight it by just chopping off a leg.”
