Diabetic Shoes in Lakewood, CA
Experienced Podiatry Care for Your Total Foot Health
Tagaloa-Tulifau Foot & Ankle Center is privileged to serve our diabetic community. Diabetic foot complications are the leading cause of non-traumatic lower-limb amputations in the United States and are the most common cause of hospitalization for people with diabetes. This is truly unfortunate as up to 85% of amputations can be prevented.
Dr. Tagaloa-Tulifau has developed a comprehensive program that will keep you out of the hospital and in comfortable diabetic shoes in Lakewood, CA, with all of your toes intact! Research has shown that a single visit to a podiatrist can reduce your risk of amputation by 29%.
Our process is simple yet complete. You come in for an initial assessment. We perform a history and examination to determine your risk for developing an ulcer – an open sore that can lead to amputation. We educate you based on your current risk and create a treatment/prevention program for you to follow. Some people only need to be seen once a year whereas others might need to come every few months and some, unfortunately, more often than that if problems arise.
We communicate with your primary care physician and have quick access to the hospital in case you have any complications. We are well versed in the management of diabetic foot complications, so should you find yourself at the hospital, we can assure you that you’re in good hands.
