"Representing Medical and Surgical Specialists of the Foot and Ankle"

The Iowa Podiatric Medical Society (IPMS) is a professional organization of podiatrists located throughout the state of Iowa.

Podiatry is the branch of medicine specializing in the care and treatment of the human foot and ankle in health and disease. Doctors of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) are physicians and surgeons who practice on the lower extremities, primarily on feet and ankles.  The preparatory education for most DPMs includes four years of undergraduate work, followed by four years in an accredited podiatric medical school and then a three-year residency program.

November is Diabetes Awareness Month

Of the more than 28 million people in the US with diabetes, about half will develop neuropathy, a loss of feeling in the lower extremities. This nerve damage means an open sore or injury on the foot may go unnoticed until it becomes infected, which can eventually lead to the need for partial or full amputation of the foot or lower leg. In fact, diabetes is the leading cause of non-traumatic lower-limb amputation.

However, while the risk of foot complications may be frightening, there are many ways in which YOU can help outsmart diabetes!
