Charcot Foot, a severe diabetic complication, is a sudden softening of the foot’s bones caused by neuropathy. It can trigger an avalanche of problems, including joint loss, fractures, collapse of the arch, massive deformity, ulcers, amputation, and even death.
Charcot foot cannot be reversed, but its destructive effects can be stopped; and in some instances the foot can be reconstructed. Symptoms appear suddenly and can include warm and red skin, swelling, and pain.
 
If you are a diabetic with or without known neuropathy and notice any of these symptoms, please call one of our Advanced Podiatry offices immediately and see one of our expert podiatrists at Advanced Podiatry of Manhasset, Huntington, Plainview, or Maspeth. The earlier Diabetic Charcot Foot is diagnosed and treated, the greater the potential for a successful outcome.
