University of Arizona’s SALSA Spices up the Palais Des Congres de Montreal for IDF World Diabetes Congress

The Southern Arizona Limb Salvage Alliance (SALSA) of the Department of Surgery at the University of Arizona College of Medicine was well represented at the largest diabetes symposium in the world today in Montreal. SALSA Scientist Dr. Manish Bharara is presenting three SALSA studies on Thermometry (used to predict wounds), the team approach to amputation prevention (commonly referred to as the “Toe & Flow”– a term coined by SALSA) and Diabetes Related Amputations. These works were co-authored by SALSA clinician-scientists Prof. David G Armstrong, Prof. Joseph Mills, Prof. Horacio L Rilo and Dr. Ryan Fitzgerald. “I am enormously pleased with how well these have been received”, noted Dr. Bharara. “It is an indication of the global epidemic we’re in and the high quality work going on at centers, worldwide to stem the tide of amputations.”
