Editorial Reviews

"This book is quite well laid out, discussing some of the relevant pathophysiology of the neurovascular systems before addressing treatment options both conservative and surgical, but primarily surgical. This book is definitely aimed at clinical surgeons actively treating the diabetic foot in a comprehensive surgical manner. . The book does meet its objectives. . it is primarily aimed at surgeons, and within that group, orthopedic and podiatric surgeons will be the likely beneficiaries." (Martin C. Yorath, Doody''s Book Reviews, June, 2016)
