Diabetes is an epidemic worldwide and Singapore has not been spared. With more and more people having diabetes, wounds, ulcers and infections in the lower limb and foot are increasingly common. Management in these cases would usually involve a careful examination of the foot for any correctable causes for the wound, management of any infection and good overall control of the diabetes and any associated complications. More and more, people do not accept an amputation as a solution, and reconstruction and rebalancing of the foot can be helpful to salvage or save the foot from an amputation in selected cases. Corrective surgery can also be a good option to aid in ulcer and wound healing particularly in chronic non-healing wounds.
