In a recently published randomized controlled trial, when compared to current standards of care, our technology, the Orpyx SI showed a reduction in diabetic foot ulcer recurrence in 86% of people with a history of previous diabetic foot ulcers. Neuropathy occurs in 70% of people with diabetes and can cause a lack of sensation leading to injuries going undetected and a higher prevalence of diabetic foot ulcers. In addition, neuropathy damages blood vessels resulting in compromised blood flow and healing that can eventually lead to the need for amputation of the foot or leg. It is the number one cause of lower-extremity amputations when not treated properly.
Our podiatrists not only treat a wide range of foot conditions, but also help patients with diabetes manage and maintain foot health with treatment plans that reduce the risk of injury and infection. We are an approved Medicare provider for diabetic shoes that are specifically designed for diabetic patients.
