our fairfax, va podiatrist specialize in diabetic foot care & conditions

Fairfax Foot & Ankle Center is devoted to the care and treatment of diabetic foot problems. Our Podiatrists perform routine care, such as shaving corns and calluses and trimming toenails, as well as treating ulcers and infections.

Diabetics are prone to poor circulation, have a weakened immune system and impaired nerve function in their feet. Due to poor circulation or lack of sensation after poor circulation, diabetic feet are more susceptible to developing sores, and non-healing wounds which may lead to ulcers. These wounds can also develop into serious infections which can lead to amputations, loss of limbs and even loss of life.

With diabetes, you also have a good chance of developing neuropathy. Symptoms of neuropathy can be pain, numbness, tingling and burning sensation in your feet. Our Diabetic Foot Specialists recommend that you come in for a comprehensive diabetic foot evaluation.

Fairfax Foot & Ankle Center will use the latest technology to test and assess the circulation to your feet, and determine if you have peripheral neuropathy. Once the evaluation is complete, our Podiatrists will design a treatment plan specifically for you.

If you're a diabetic, reach out and schedule an appointment today so that our Podiatrists can provide you with the care you'll need to minimize possible complications.
