Case Studies in Diabetic Foot by Ghanshyam Goyal

Presented as case studies, this book is a practical guide to the diabetic foot, with a focus on the different types and stages of diabetic foot disease and clinical management.

Divided into nine sections, the book begins with in depth coverage of diagnostic tools. Each of the following sections discusses the treatment of different diabetic foot disorders, from simple cures to more aggressive and advanced modalities to avoid amputations.
