Preventive Foot Care

We have specialised podiatry therapy for patients who have the burning sensation, numbness, pain in the foot. A large number of patients have benefited from this therapy.

Neuropathic Assessment 

Diabetic Neuropathy is a type of nerve damage that affects individuals who have diabetes. Symptoms include pain,  numbness and burning sensation in the legs

Our centre has got the advanced technology to detect early nerve damage and stop its worsening.

  1. Biothesiometer- To check vibration sensation

2. Thermal perception test

3. Infrared thermometer – to detect early charcot foot

4. Foot scan Paedopodogram – To detect high-pressure area which can become ulcer.


Assessment of Vascularity

Ankle-brachial index

The ankle-brachial pressure index (ABPI) or ankle-brachial index (ABI) is the ratio of the blood pressure at the ankle to the blood pressure in the upper arm (brachium). Compared to the arm, lower blood pressure in the leg suggests blocked arteries due to peripheral artery disease (PAD)

Foot Ulcer Management

The management of diabetic foot ulcers requires multidisciplinary teamwork. Our centre has got the renowned diabetic foot specialist, podiatry nurse specialist and orthotist to manage the most difficult non-healing ulcers. We have the record of saving the highest number of limbs from amputations.
