Overview

Written by the BMA award-winning author team of Mike Edmonds and Alethea Foster

Aimed at podiatrists, nurses, physicians, surgeons, orthotists and all other members of the multidisciplinary diabetic foot team, Managing the Diabetic Foot, Second Edition, remains a “must-have” for all those interested in diabetes and the diabetic foot.


The chapter on amputation has been expanded as has the overall surgical focus. Metabolic control and all other aspects of management have also been extensively updated. There is a new introductory chapter which describes the assessment of the diabetic foot, incorporating an illustrated section on differential diagnosis. Furthermore, the content aids the implementation of the NICE guidelines and the ‘National Service Framework for Diabetes’.
