Conditions treated and cured

 

Our Unit, one of the few in Italy, takes care of prevention, diagnosis, cure and limb salvage in patients with Diabetic Foot. Foot ulcer in diabetic patients, main condition treated, significantly increases risk of amputation above the ankle. Diabetics, now about 7% of population, represent about 70% of non-traumatic amputees by themselves. We also take care of Wound Care – that is, cure of lower limb wounds, such as venous, arterious, mixed, infect, vasculitic, post-trauma and post-radiation skin ulcers.

Doctor-patient relations

Particular care is dedicated to explanations about the patient’s condition, the possible alternatives and the involvement of relatives when necessary.
During examinations and visits the doctor devotes particular attention to help the patient understand diagnosis and suggested treatments, to choose the most appropriate one.
With hospital discharge copies of more significative exams made during hospitalization are provided.

Particular attention is dedicated to customization of services and cures. At the beginning of the stay, the patient is “assigned” to a “tutor nurse” who will be his spokesman for his necessities, interpreting and taking care of his needs.
