About this book

In The Diabetic Foot: Medical and Surgical Management, 3rd Edition, a distinguished panel of clinicians provides a thorough update of the significant improvements in knowledge surrounding the pathogenesis of diabetic foot problems, as well as the optimal healthcare treatment for this debilitating condition.  The authors, many practicing at the famous Joslin-Beth Israel Deaconess Foot Center, again illuminate the successful new multidisciplinary approach now clearly required for the successful treatment of diabetic foot.  Drawing on the experiences of diabetologists, podiatrists, vascular surgeons, infectious disease specialists, orthotists, plastic and orthopedic surgeons, this invaluable third edition, so timely given the continued rise of diabetes and its complications, clearly describes established techniques known to be effective.  This updated edition blends new knowledge with the time-tested principles of diabetic foot management and will be of significant value to all physicians and researchers with an interest in a state-of-the-art understanding of diabetic foot.

Reviews

From the reviews of the third edition:

“This book describes the principles of care of the diabetic surgical patient with an emphasis on diabetic foot problems. … gives an excellent general account of medical and surgical management of the diabetic foot and can be recommended in particular to family doctors and to surgeons at the beginning of their careers.” (R. T. Grundmann, South African Journal of Surgery, Vol. 51 (1), February, 2013)

“As diabetes continues to make its presence felt in epidemic proportions on a global scale, this book is not only desirable, but also necessary. The objectives are met! Written primarily for physicians, surgeons, and nurses who are involved in the treatment of the foot and ankle in diabetes, it will be of use to others too, including researchers, residents, and students. … The strength of this book is its comprehensive approach, which will be the distinguishing factor from its competitors.” (Martin C. Yorath, Doody’s Book Reviews, August, 2012)
