Diabetic Foot

As this disease progresses it also affects the lower limbs by damaging the nerves and/or arteries. It is thus very important to keep an eye on one’s feet, to prevent any ulcer formation due to unknown abrasions, cuts or breakdown beneath callused skin. A comprehensive foot check along with any necessary treatment is offered in our foot clinic. If required, we will liaise with your GP regarding for any additional or onward management eg antibiotics.

Nishal Patel previously sub-specialised in diabetic foot care within the NHS and so is very well placed to deal with this condition and its potential complications. Thorough attention to the feet in those with diabetes can literally be limb-saving.
