Abstract

Administration of prompt and appropriate care for diabetic foot ulcerations is necessary to reduce complications, which may lead to limb loss. An understanding of standard, appropriate, and advanced care may assist the physician in making the most optimal decision when treating diabetic foot ulcers. An overview of the diabetic foot, its associative problems, considerations when reviewing the diabetic patient, and approaches to treatment are presented in this article. Clinicians are encouraged to review each patient individually to determine their specific needs and to administer the most appropriate care.
