Shoes, orthoses, and prostheses for partial foot amputation and diabetic foot infection



Shoes, orthoses, and prostheses for partial foot amputation and diabetic foot infection



Foot and Ankle Clinics 15(3): 509-523



Amputations in patients with diabetes, while often preventable, are unfortunately a far too common outcome. The roles of the certified or licensed pedorthist, certified orthotist, and the certified prosthetist should not be undervalued in the prevention of diabetic foot complications (eg, amputations, revisions, and foot infections secondary to skin ulcerations) and in returning the patient a normal, active, and productive lifestyle in the event of an amputation. This article highlights the roles these specialists play in treating patients with partial foot amputation.
