“Diabetic foot” is often used to describe a condition known as Charcot arthropathy, which is one of several problems that may arise from diabetes-related nerve damage. In this condition, the bones of the foot are severely weakened, causing the foot to change shape over time. Because there is decreased sensation in the foot from nerve damage, the affected individual may not realize there is a problem until physical changes start to develop.
At the ORA Orthopedics Foot & Ankle Center of Excellence in the Quad Cities, our specialists provide diabetic wound treatment that is tailored to the specific needs of each individual. Depending on the extent of the foot deformity and the patient’s overall health, we may suggest a combination of bracing, custom shoes and activity modification to protect the bones and promote healing. Surgery to restore the shape of the foot may be necessary in some cases. Our team includes board-certified foot surgeons who utilize the latest advances in care to achieve outstanding results for our patients.
