Standing up for limb preservation.
Now, let's get started. We need to know a little bit about you. Please select your specialty:
Vascular Surgeon/Interventional Cardiologist/Interventional Radiologist
LPCA can help you start your own office-based endovascular lab (OBL), wound care/hyperbaric center, and/or ambulatory surgery center (ASC).
As a diabetic foot specialist, LPCA can help you add a wound care/hyperbaric center or an OBL/ASC to your practice.
LPCA can develop and manage your limb preservation/wound care/hyperbaric center. If you already have a wound care center, we can add a limb preservation and/or hyperbaric program that improves efficiencies and collaboration among hospital departments.
LPCA can help develop a disease management program related to care of the diabetic foot with little upfront cost.
The Limb Preservation Centers of America team is driven by its mission to prevent unnecessary major lower limb amputations, primarily due to complications of diabetes.
Our goal is to expand our national and international presence by developing a network of providers who follow evidence-based clinical pathways within diverse service models.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between a wound care center and a limb preservation center?
A wound care center treats chronic wounds, including diabetic foot ulcers, venous ulcers and pressure ulcers. A Limb Preservation Center places a focus on prevention and timely intervention to improve management of diabetic foot ulcers/infections and other limb-threatening conditions. In addition, our world-renowned limb preservation experts ensure that best practices are followed to avoid unnecessary major lower-limb amputations.
