Khurram Khan, DPM, educates diabetic patients about disease management and self-care. He knows that for patients suffering from diabetes, foot problems can have disastrous consequences.
Diabetic foot care starts with understanding. Discussions include diet and nutrition, exercise and maintaining good blood sugar levels. But if a foot wound does develop, state-of-the-science infection management, surgery, and rehabilitation are all available at Temple.
Prevention through education is Dr. Khan’s first line of defense. Dr. Khan counsels patients to prevent problems before they start and to intervene early if they do. Just one visit to a podiatrist can lower your risk for amputation.
Interdisciplinary care also benefits patients. Dr. Khan regularly consults with cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons and endocrinologists, providing a seamless care continuum for patients.
