Welcome Note

Dear Colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to The Virtual 2nd European Conference on Controversies in Diabetic Foot Management (DiabeticFoot-Europe).

DiabeticFoot-Europe follows the success of the inaugural 2019 Conference which took place in Vienna and continues to provide a first-of-its-kind platform for multidisciplinary top-tier scientific and clinical discussions regarding the management and salvage of the diabetic foot, as well as technological innovation, debates and controversies in the field.

Diabetic Foot is one of the most serious complications of Diabetes – which is of an epidemic scale in both developed and developing countries. Ulceration of the feet would severely aggravate the overall health status and patient condition and will likely have socioeconomic impact as well, particularly if eventually leading to foot or limb amputation. Managing the diabetic foot is a multidisciplinary effort by experts such as podiatrists, orthopedists, vascular and plastic surgeons, dermatologists, neurologists, endocrinologists, diabetes specialists, biomechanists, rehabilitation physicians, physical therapists, nutritionists, nurses, footwear and orthotic consultants and industry research & development leaders. Biomedical research in gait and motion science, tissue mechanics, microbiology, sensor technology, image processing and big data is fundamental to clinical practice.

We welcome our attendees from the above-listed and other disciplines to discuss the burning topics in diabetic foot management.

At the end of each session our speakers with join us for a LIVE Panel Discussion/Q&APlease send our speakers your questions via the text box. 

We encourage you to view the e-posters, visit the Sponsors & Exhibitors area, network with your fellow delegates, reach out via the chat function and schedule one-to-one meetings with each other. 

Thank you for joining us at DiabeticFoot-Europe.

Yours sincerely,

Prof. Amit Gefen
