High Risk Foot Service
Welcome to the High Risk Foot Service (HRFS). The HRFS uses a multi-disciplinary team approach to manage patients with complex foot pathologies due to medical disorders such as Diabetes Mellitus. The main aim of the HRFS is to provide the best care possible for patients with high risk feet in order to reduce and prevent foot ulceration, infection, hospital admissions and lower extremity amputations. The HRFS liaises closely with other medical departments such as Endocrinology, Vascular, Infectious Disease, Orthotics / Prosthetics, Wound Care Nurses and Community Nurses to achieve the best possible of care for our patients. We are continuing to build on our strong clinical reputation for offering the most up-to-date evidence based medicine for treating high risk feet. We continue to invest in new technology and staff to help us achieve our goal of being one of Australia's leading High Risk Foot Services.
