The number of disease and factors are responsible for amputation:

Peripheral Vascular Disease: When a one suffers from peripheral vascular disease, which is a narrowing of the arteries, then this obstruction can occur. This condition accompanies a lesion, causing severe limb ischemia. This is the point when a patient is most at risk of losing a limb.

Diabetes: People with diabetes have a more significant risk for difficulties from wound healing for two main reasons. First, diabetes reduced blood movement. Therefore, diabetes cannot ignore any wound right now. Due to these two factors, diabetic foot malfunction is a common issue that often causes major complications.

Tobacco: Smoking increases the risk of complications from wound healing. The nicotine found in cigarettes reduces blood flow to the skin.

Treatment:

Dr. Bill Releford approach to Amputation prevention treatment Los Angeles is aggressive and comprehensive, coordinating traditional and advanced therapies and techniques that are proven to reduce healing time and improve healing rates.
Meanwhile, non-healing wounds rarely have a single cause, and we begin with a more in-depth evaluation and clinical experimentation to determine the root cause of the injury. A treatment plan is then established to give patients the best chance of treatment.

Amputation Prevention Center:

The Amputation Prevention Center at Releford Institute is a surgically focused inpatient and outpatient program designed specifically for patients at risk of diabetes, such as diabetic foot ulcers/infections and peripheral artery disease. Our aim at the amputation prevention center is to prevent low extremity amputation. Most leg amputations of the lower limbs are caused by ulcers that are a result of complications from diabetes
