Summary This book provides a practical guide to the treatment of patients as risk from limb amputation. The most common presentations of the diabetic foot are presented in concise and evidence-based chapters covering the neuropathic foot, the Charcot foot, the ischemic foot, and the infected foot. Each section includes an introduction to the clinical approach as well as an algorithm illustrating the limb salvage pathway and intervention steps. Limb Salvage of the Diabetic Foot: An Interdisciplinary Approach aims to help the reader build an interdisciplinary understanding of the diabetic foot and its treatment and is of interest to all members of the interdisciplinary diabetic foot team including surgeons, podiatrists, radiologists, nurses, orthotists, infectious disease physicians, and endocrinologists
