Prof. David G. Armstrong of @USC @KeckMedUSC wins Top International Award for Intervention to Prevent Amputation in Diabetes @JWCEditor @APMA

David G. Armstrong, Professor of Surgery and Director of the Southwestern Academic Limb Salvage Alliance (SALSA) at Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California won the “Best Diabetic Foot Intervention” Award at a Ceremony in London this past week. The honor was directed as his team’s efforts in developing an interdisciplinary hotline to rapidly assess and treat complex diabetic foot complications. Nicknamed the “Hot Foot Line”, this model has cut foot amputations in half and boosted limb-sparing reconstructive procedures. “I am so honored to accept this award on behalf of a great team of physicians, surgeons, nurses and therapists”, noted Dr. Armstrong “To see this model grow and improve worldwide is, frankly, gratifying and life-affirming.” The JWC Awards honored more than a dozen technologies and investigators from around the world. Armstrong’s team also won second place in a related award during the program.
