Podiatric surgery and the diabetic foot: an audit of a community-based diabetic foot surgery
MetadataShow full item record
Nottingham is home to an established diabetic foot multidisciplinary team (MDT) with good links to orthopaedic and vascular surgeons, but historically, referral to podiatric surgeons has not been considered. Nottingham is also home to an established podiatric surgery team that offers surgical treatment of elective foot complaints as a day case, under local anaesthetic in a community-based facility. This paper examines the role a podiatric surgery service can play within an existing MDT structure.
