New developments and controversies in the multidisciplinary management of the diabetic foot


Welcome Message


Dear colleagues, partners and friends,

It is with great anticipation and excitement that we extend a cordial invitation to all of you to join the congress entitled: New developments and controversies in the multidisciplinary management of the diabetic foot, which will be held on May 26th, 2017 in Athens, Greece.

Diabetic foot is a serious complication of diabetes mellitus and a foot ulcer usually precedes minor or major amputation of the lower extremity.

The WHO and the International Diabetes Federation have set goals to reduce the rate of amputations by up to 50%. Multidisciplinary treatment and prevention may reduce the amputation rate. The aim of the symposium is to provide guidelines for the prevention and treatment of the diabetic foot. Some of the new ideas and controversies for the management of this condition will be discussed by international experts, who represent the full spectrum of the multidisciplinary team, such as orthopaedics, radiology, infectious diseases, diabetic medicine, prosthetics and last but not least vascular surgery. We are confident that the Congress will represent for all participants a professional experience, and we look forward to welcoming you in Athens.
