Dr Hollander have been able to participate in the care of many patients, allowing them to keep their limbs, which they were told they would otherwise lose.
Altogether, 61% of the patients with Diabetes and 54.3% of those without diabetes died about 5 years after the first amputation. Survival was not different between patients with and without diabetes.**
The Role of a podiatrist is to save limbs, therefore extending the life a patient has.
Wound care and limb salvaging is a difficult one, but a very important. Dr Hollander prides himself in doing everything possible for every patient.
