Treatment of Osteomyelitis (bone infection) and diabetic foot infections
Diabetics are often plagued by severe and complicated soft tissue infections of the feet as well as concomitant bone infections (osteomyelitis) requiring prolonged antibiotic therapy and the intervention of a specialist.
Infectious disease physicians specialize in coordinating and monitoring appropriate long term antibiotic therapy for all types of infections. If the appropriate antibiotic is not chosen, the infection may linger and fail to resolve completely.
With the broad choice of antibiotic therapy available in today's market place, it is crucial to have an experienced professional overseeing therapy to avoid incomplete treatment and potential relapses. The physicians of SEHID will work closely with your podiatrist or surgeon and monitor you as an outpatient in order to assure the best possible outcome of your infection.
