Whatever type of podiatry care you need, our Scottsdale AZ podiatrist can expertly provide you with it. We specialize in diabetic foot and wound care. If a patient has diabetes, it is important that they do not develop foot care complications. It will help greatly to keep your blood sugar levels as close to normal as possible. When you have diabetes, it is critical that you keep your feet healthy by working with our podiatrist. He can help reduce the likelihood of your developing any type of foot infection. He will also take sure that any infection is quickly treated so that further complications do not develop. When it comes to diabetic foot care, the key to great foot care is prevention. You should check the bottom of your feet daily to make sure you are not developing any foot problems. In addition, you will want to make sure that even the smallest foot problem is treated promptly. For example, if you have a corn on your toe, you will want to visit our podiatrist so that it can be treated. This is because a corn can become infected, and if this occurs, you may have trouble since you may have reduced circulation in your feet; this makes effective treatment more difficult. Our foot doctor can meet with you so that you can learn how you can keep your feet protected for a lifetime.
