The Podiatric Surgery department at Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences is one of the few centres of excellence in India in the field of Diabetic foot surgery.  "Diabetic foot surgery and modern management of diabetic foot problems are not given any prominence in our graduate and under-graduate medical courses and so young doctors have very limited exposure and skills in managing such patients. This is a great irony since we have many millions of people with diabetes and the burden of diabetic foot disease is very great in our country where diabetes is the commonest cause of amputations. Proper and efficient medical care with use of the latest technology and innovative treatment methods can prevent amputations in the majority of cases," said Dr. Harish Kumar, Professor, Endocrinology, Amrita School of Medicine, Kochi.
