A Note from our friend Kshitij Shankhdhar from Lucknow, India
It’s for the First time in South Asia, 10 experts of international repute in Podiatric Medicine (foot care) will get together to offer an exceptional training program in Diabetic Foot Care. In USA there are 10 colleges of Podiatric Medicine and over 13 thousand Podiatrists. In South Asia there are no Colleges of Podiatric Medicine and little opportunity for a structured training in Foot Care. Every 20 seconds an amputation is done due to diabetes. 85% of these amputations are preventable through education and better foot care. This training program will cover right from basics of diabetic foot care to advanced management techniques in Foot and Ankle surgery. Our faculty includes experts from both developing and developed world so that we have a global view regarding problems and solutions while rendering diabetic foot care. Besides interesting lectures, hands on training will be offered under 3 workshops to sharpen clinical skills of colleagues in examination, investigation and management of the diabetic foot. This training program is one of its kind and a great opportunity to interact in person and learn directly from the best in field of Diabetic Foot Care. We look forward for participation by readers!
