Diabetes and cardiovascular disease are closely linked. Patients with diabetes are two to four times more likely to develop coronary artery disease​, which puts patients at risk for peripheral vascular disease (PVD) – the major culprit in diabetic foot problems. In turn, the usual symptoms of vascular disease may be hidden or "masked" by diabetes.

The Vascular & Diabetic Foot Center offers a comprehensive approach toward prevention and treatment of vascular disease and diabetic foot problems. A team of vascular surgeons and podiatrists on the medical staff dedicated exclusively to care of the diabetic foot work together in a unique clinical setting to evaluate and monitor patients.

Patients undergo a comprehensive diabetic foot exam, which includes evaluating a patient for neuropathy (new problems), blood flow problems, foot deformity, and history of recurrent ulcers and/or amputation. Vascular surgeons on the medical staff use advanced imaging tools to evaluate a patient's vascular status. Many times a simple non-invasive test and exam can evaluate patients for vascular disease and determine if more in-depth evaluation and intervention are needed.
