Why Choose Mount Nittany Health’s Diabetes Foot Clinic?

Did you know, more than five million people in the United States are at risk for diabetes-related foot problems? In fact, people with diabetes spend more time in the hospital for treatment of foot problems than for any other reason. Let our dedicated providers help you ensure your life is not limited by foot problems.

Our Approach

As a new patient, diabetes foot clinic staff will assess the status of the nerves and circulation in your legs and feet. If any problems are identified, the staff provide preventative education and treat the noted problems. Although the underlying problem — nerve damage in the feet — cannot be cured, it can be managed.

A board-certified endocrinologist, physical therapists, orthotist, or orthotic specialist collaborate with Mount Nittany Health Wound Care staff to provide a wide range of treatment options for you. Referrals to vascular and foot surgeons are also provided when appropriate. After acute foot problems have been resolved, patients return to their regular physicians for ongoing care, with return visits to the clinic recommended at least annually.

Conditions We Treat

  • Diabetic or neuropathic foot ulcers
  • Charcot fractures
  • Other foot complications related to Diabetes

Fittings for Proper Footwear

The diabetes foot clinic is supported by Mount Nittany Health’s orthotics department, which provides specialized footwear and custom devices to protect feet.

Pressure Mapping

Pressure can be mapped underneath a patient’s feet as they walk. This information is used to design the best footwear solution. The use of appropriate footwear helps to prevent foot problems from recurring.

Total Contact Casting

Total contact casting is the most-effective method known for healing neuropathic wounds. For patients with good circulation, foot ulcers can be healed in less than six weeks, using a total contact cast.
