There are very few specialized Foot Care and Wound Care Clinics in India. Foot/Ankle problems and non-healing wounds are not considered a very major medical problem.
Currently, wound care is a neglected field in India except in few selected institutes in the country. As the incidence of Diabetes and Diabetic Foot ulcer increases, this lacuna is likely to pose serious challenge for public health system.
Therefore, Dr. Sanjay felt the need to start a state of the art specialised Foot Clinic dealing exclusively with foot, ankle & wound problems in diabetics, sportsmen, athletes and also general population with various foot related problems, seeing the increasing number of patients with foot related problems.
The mission is to provide prompt diagnosis, treatment, management, customised orthotics & footwear and patient education. His ultimate goal is to heal patients as quickly and safely as possible and to prevent further complications & amputations!!
With this mission and goal, a team of professionals led by Dr. Sanjay Vaidya, came together to start this Advanced Foot Care and Wound Management Centre with state of the art treatments, modalities and technologies to cater to foot problems, wound care and complications in diabetics.
