Podiatry

It will be an understatement to say that the Department of Podiatry at KIER is one of the best Podiatric departments in the whole of the country. With a motto of providing “Affordable holistic diabetic foot care under one roof”, it has grown from a single room department to a department with three sub departments. The newly added “advanced wound care and rehabilitation centre” which was started in January 2016 has already catered to around 5000 patients and is proving a boon for the patients with multitude musculoskeletal manifestations of diabetes. The department of Podiatry after its inception has been instrumental in screening around 50,000 pairs of diabetic feet. The department also maintains a one of its kind “Diabetic foot registry” helping in quantifying this dreaded complication of diabetic foot in the Indian health setup. Special modalities like Angiopress have had its own contribution in saving multiple diabetic limbs. The improved laser therapy has treated a number of painful conditions and helped in the rehabilitation of patients who would otherwise have been told to just control the blood sugars.

 

The different services provided in the Department of Podiatry are

  • Dedicated debridement unit for debridement of wounds including minor surgeries.
  • State of the art podiatry lab which includes modalities like Pedoscan, Neurotouch assessment, TcPO2, CANS, Vaso doppler assessment to name a few.
  • Advanced WOUND Care & Rehabilitation Centre to take care of the painful conditions and special equipments like angiopress, O2C, Shockwave therapy and Lymphapress therapy.
  • Dedicated CAD-CAM system for production of customised offloading footwear at an affordable price for patients.
