That’s a lot of wear and tear on our feet and ankles, the unique body parts that keep America moving, active, and productive at our jobs. Doctors of Podiatric Medicine (DPMs) are physicians and surgeons at the forefront of delivering specialized foot and ankle care.
Each and every day, podiatric physicians keep America walking by preventing higher cost critical outcomes like hospitalizations and amputations. In fact, the inclusion of care provided by podiatric physicians for those with diabetes alone will save our health-care system as much as $3.5 billion per year.
