AUGUST 19, 2012 [Peripheral Vascular Disease] Preventing Lower Leg Amputation
I have served for 29 years in the Peripheral Vascular Disease Clinic of a large metropolitan hospital. We see many diabetic patients who have already lost all or part of one leg and want us to care for the remaining extremity. When I interview these patients, I always ask for the cause of the initial amputation. In every case, it has been an attempt to grind down or remove a callus, usually by a podiatrist but sometimes by the patient or a family member.

JULY 8, 2013 [Peripheral Vascular Disease] Editor's Note, DCMS #144: Treating Calluses in Diabetic Patients
Often times when we see a diabetes patient, the first thing we look for are problems with the feet. When I meet a new patient, I always ask whether they have seen a podiatrist. These physicians specialize in problems from the tips of the toes to the tops of the ankles, and no one is more fit to diagnose and treat foot problems. To decrease pain, some podiatrists will offer to file down calluses and this brings relief to many patients.
