We encourage anyone with diabetes to pay special attention to their feet and to visit a podiatrist regularly to ensure their feet stay healthy for years to come.
West Palm Beach, FL (PRWEB) November 21, 2013
November is National Diabetes Awareness Month, and podiatrists are especially vigilant of this disease since diabetes often affects the feet first. In fact, many diabetic diagnoses start with a visit to the podiatrist for foot pain or tingling.
Dr. Cutler, Dr. Fried, Dr. Daly and Dr. Kazamias of South Florida Foot & Ankle Centers see many patients in various stages of diabetes and offer treatment, diabetic foot care, specialty products and even perform surgery to alleviate the pain of neuropathy. Peripheral nerve decompression surgery is a revolutionary procedure that can relieve pain or loss of sensation in the leg, ankle and foot.
“Neuropathy can cause numbness, tingling and burning pain in the feet,” says Dr. Jonathan Cutler, DPM. “I have had great success performing peripheral nerve decompression surgery on both diabetic and non-diabetic patients who have neuropathy.”
For patients who are living with diabetes or neuropathy, but are not yet candidates for surgery, diabetic shoes and NeuRx-TF neuropathy supplements can help them deal with the disease on a day-to-day basis. South Florida Foot & Ankle Centers is offering these specialty products at 25% off throughout the month of November.
To cap off the month, South Florida Foot & Ankle Centers announces that it is once again a silver sponsor of the JDRF West Palm Beach 2014 Walk to Cure Diabetes. The Walk will be held on March 1, 2014 at Meyer Amphitheatre in downtown West Palm Beach. Donations are being accepted at all six South Florida Foot & Ankle Centers throughout Palm Beach County:
- Royal Palm Beach
- Palm Beach Gardens
- Lake Worth
- Belle Glade
- Port St. Lucie
- West Palm Beach
“Diabetes is not a disease to be taken lightly,” says Dr. Brett Fried, DPM. “We encourage anyone with diabetes to pay special attention to their feet and to visit a podiatrist regularly to ensure their feet stay healthy for years to come.”
