An Amputation Prevention Center (APC) is a specialized program within a wound center that treats patients with limb-threatening conditions such as diabetic foot ulcers/infections and peripheral arterial disease.
Diabetic foot complications are among the most complex to treat and require a coordinated, organized approach from a team of specialists with advanced training.
The good news is up to 80% of amputations due to diabetic complications are preventable with an integrated approach to treatment.
Time is of the essence when trying to save a limb from amputation
