Sanford Health's new Limb Preservation Center in Sioux Falls, S.D., plans to use a coordinated approach to prevent amputations in high-risk patients. Vascular surgeons, an advanced-trained podiatrist and wound-care specialists will coordinate care with other specialists in infectious disease, plastic surgery, orthopedics, endocrinology, cardiology, nephrology and rehabilitation. "Our mission to protect, prevent and save function in the legs and toes is truly about keeping our patients as mobile as possible," vascular surgeon Patrick Kelly said.
