Diabetic Limb Salvage

Dr. Douglas Livingston has extensive experience, training and background in diabetic limb salvage. Dr. Livingston completed a fellowship in limb salvage at Georgetown University Medical Center.

With the rising number of people being diagnosed with diabetes as well as the rising number of lower extremity amputation, it is more important than ever that a person living with diabetes seek out and receive the best possible care and treatment for their diabetic foot problems.

Some 21 million Americans have diabetes, meaning their bodies cannot properly regulate blood sugar, or glucose. Over years, high glucose levels seriously damage blood vessels and nerves, eventually leading to kidney failure, heart disease and other complications. The foot is one of the first organs to be adversely affected by diabetes.
