Landmark American Diabetes Association Best Seller on Diabetic Foot Now Enters Second Edition

The American Diabetes Association's bestselling “Clinical Care of the Diabetic Foot” has now entered its second edition. Six years after its first publication, editors David G. Armstrong, Professor of Surgery and Director of the Southern Arizona Limb Salvage Alliance (SALSA) at the University of Arizona and Lawrence A. Lavery, Professor of Orthopaedic and Plastic Surgery at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, have again teamed up as co editors with world-renowned clinicians and researchers to produce another landmark text. “This work takes the first edition and thoroughly updates it with important new information”, notes Dr. Lavery “Key 'bread and butter' information about assessment, classification and management of this complex problem are made available in a single text.” Dr. Armstrong continued on the same lines, reiterating “We are so pleased with this new edition. It now includes practical tips on setting up 'toe and flow'-type team limb salvage units as well as all of the other ingredients that have made this so successful in the past. It is an honor to have participated.” The book, whose proceeds go to support the ADA research foundation, will be launched at this month's American Diabetes Association and available online through the ADA bookstore as well as Amazon and others in July.

  • Diabetes today is a major problem in the UK and in the rest of the world; the treatment of which costs millions of pounds for which purchasing medical insurance for diabetics is a good solution.
