Diabetic foot syndrome

Diabetic foot syndrome is an important complication of diabetes mellitus that often limits the quality of life. Due to the frequently impaired perception of pain and restricted blood circulation in the feet as a result of diabetes, even the smallest injuries can develop into infected wounds that often heal poorly and, in the worst case, can also lead to bone infections.

In the Diabetic Medicine Department in Havelhöhe, complicated wounds in the context of diabetic foot syndrome are also treated in cooperation with our Surgery department, interventional radiologists, an orthopaedic shoe provider and podiatrists. In addition to conventional wound treatment, complementary methods are also used, including wound treatment with Manuka honey. In the case of circulatory problems, vascular dilatations are carried out in cooperation with the Jüdisches Krankenhaus in Berlin, if necessary.
