In The Diabetic Foot: Medical and Surgical Management, a distinguished panel of clinicians-many practicing at the famous Joslin-Beth Israel Deaconess Foot Center-illuminate the successful new multidisciplinary approach now clearly required for the successful treatment of this medical problem. Drawing on the experiences of diabetologists, podiatrists, vascular surgeons, infectious disease specialists, orthotists, plastic and orthopedic surgeons, the book clearly describes established techniques known to be effective. Also highlighted are the many emerging treatments that will affect diabetic foot care in the years ahead, including a new understanding of wound-healing pathophysiology and the recent introduction of growth factors and living skin equivalents.

Editorial Reviews

"This book is a must for any practitioner treating diabetic foot patients. With an array of authors from renowned institutions, this book has satisfactorily taken on the enormous task of providing current information on the management of the diabetic foot, while reinforcing well-established protocols, principles, and treatments. . .Particularly well done is the chapter on clinical examination and identification of the at-risk patient, which presents key questions for identifying ulcer risk and assessing a diabetic foot wound. Several chapters informatively and clearly address the vascular complications and surgical treatments available. Also well-covered is diabetic polyneuropathy. In this challenging yet common complication of diabetes, the author does an excellent job of classifying various syndromes of diabetic neuropathy, including differential diagnosis, causes, and management. The surgical chapters describe an array of options for the surgical practitioner. Of note is the section on amputations and rehabilitation in which the authors provide an innovative view of amputations as a procedure to enable the patient to return to productive community activity instead of failure or the start of disability. It is a pleasure to review such an insightful book full of information, new and old, that can be easily incorporated into the daily treatment of the diabetic foot patient. I highly recommend this book as an additional reference for those involved in the complicated task of medical and surgical management of the diabetic foot." -Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal"The topics covered range from proven preventive strategies to cutting-edge wound care techniques that draw on such new developments as growth factors and living skin equivalents. A detailed review of the pathophysiology of the diabetic foot is also included. The emphasis throughout is on a multidisciplinary approach that incorporates the services of diabetologists, podiatrists, orthopedic surgeons, orthotists, diabetic nurse educators and others. Numerous black-and-white color photographs, drawings, algorithms, and charts illustrate the text" - Consultant"Overall, this is an excellent text. Dr. Veves and his colleagues have provided a scholarly and multidisciplinary summary of an increasingly common clinical problem faced by all vascular surgeons. This book will be of great value to vascular surgeons, orthopedic surgeons who treat diabetic foot problems, and other specialists who treat these patients." -Annals of Vascular Surgery"This book provides detailed information on the medical and surgical management of the diabetic foot. With chapters from many eminent contributors, the book will serve as an excellent point of reference to most departments involved in diabetic foot care." -European Journal of Endovascular "The 37 experts contributing to this excellent new book can help the reader appropriately advise and treat patients to minimize the bad outcomes-otherwise inherent in diabetes." - Comprehensive Therapy"This book provides detailed information on the medical and sugical management of the diabetic foot...the book will serve as an excellent point of reference to all individuals involved in the care of the diabetic foot disease...a welcome addition as a point of reference to most departments involved in diabetic foot care." - Eur J Vasc Surg
