    Associate Prof. Aziz Nather has masterly crafted the Diabetic Foot ["problems"(DFP)]

    Diabetic foot problems are common in anywhere in the world . It is nice to see a book like this nature coming from a multidiciplinary team from National University of Sigapore(NUS) .DFP is a book productive to the Orthopaedic Surgeon as well as to a GP.In depth of descriptions about dressings are useful to a GP or anyone who deals with foot problems pre-hospital setup and "shockwave Therapy" & "vacuum assisted closure" to those who are in secondary & tertiary care .The book is digestible to the undergraduates, postgraduates and those who are in primary care .The only drawback I see is the inclusion of extensive (? unnecessary ) research data charts in the book.I hope Prof. Nather will make the book more colourful by adding colour photographs in the 2nd edition .
