Vascular Assessments

Many conditions, such as diabetes, can cause a decrease in blood flow to your feet and lower limbs.  This can be a real concern, as it can lead to delays in healing time, increased risk of infection and severe pain when having to walk even short distances.  Your Podiatrist is able to assess the blood supply to your feet during a thorough vascular assessment. A Doppler Ultrasound is a tool that is able to be used to not only assess the amount of blood getting down to your feet, but can also be used to analyse if you may be at risk of ulcerations or if in fact you require a referral to a vascular specialist.
