Abstract

Diabetic foot infection is a frequent, multifactorial and multifacettal disease. Its management requires an interdisciplinary collaboration. Multiple medical and surgical specialties are enrolled for its prevention and treatment, for good reasons. Concomitant management by various specialists shows a significant reduction in amputation rates. We review the issues of this interdisciplinary collaboration.
