If you are living with Type 1 Diabetes, you already know the importance of daily care. Your feet in particular are put at risk when you experience problems with the nervous system that cause sores, numbness, and pain as you walk. When blood flow is restricted, your feet could become subject to infections that lead to gangrene…leaving the amputation as the only viable solution.
At Virginia Orthopaedic and Spinal Specialists, our commitment to quality patient care works to prevent foot infections and tissue and nerve damage brought on by diabetes. Thanks to our association with Bon Secours Hampton Roads, we can provide a full continuum of care that works with your current diabetic treatments. At VOSS and Bon Secours, you will receive many options for care in addition to guidance for controlling your diabetes and preventing future problems with your feet.
We invite you to contact us today to learn more about our active and pro-active diabetic foot care, available through our locations in Hampton Roads.
