Foot Center

Purpose & Goals

Our mission at NMMC's Foot Center is to provide optimum care for the foot. This includes issues associated with the insensate foot as well as biomechanical deficits. Our approach includes a multidisciplinary team whose purpose is to prevent and treat complications of the foot. The following components are addressed during a typical evaluation:

  • Identification of biomechanical deficits in association with neurological, orthopedic or sports related injuries
  • Identification of vascular problems
  • Immediate diagnosis of foot lesions
  • Patient education in foot care
  • Control of risk factors such as smoking, diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol
  • Recommendation of protective foot wear
  • Professional foot care of corns, calluses and toenails

Goals

  • Patient will receive a comprehensive foot assessment.
  • Patient will receive further diagnostic testing and treatment as recommended by the referring physician.
  • Patient will be able to demonstrate and verbalize proper care for the endangered foot.
  • Patient's ulcerations will heal in a reasonable time through appropriate treatment.
  • Patient will have nail, corn and callus care as needed and demonstrate the ability to manage simple foot problems.
  • Patient will obtain or be advised on supportive and pressure-relieving footwear as needed.
  • Reduce lower extremity amputations secondary to preventable foot ulceration
  • Patient will receive continuing education regarding diabetic or insensate foot care as needed.
