FASMA Launches Amputation Prevention Center
Foot and Ankle Specialists of the Mid-Atlantic (FASMA), one of the largest Podiatric group practices in the nation, with 38 locations throughout Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C., Pennsylvania, and North Carolina, has established the FASMA Amputation Prevention Center (APC).
Under the direction of Adam L. Isaac, DPM, the FASMA APC is dedicated to the prevention and treatment of lower extremity complications of diabetes, including ulceration, infection and amputation, as well as other limb-threatening conditions.
The FASMA APC specializes in the management of high-risk patients with structural foot deformities, neuro-vascular compromise, and systemic diseases affecting the lower extremity, in particular diabetes and peripheral vascular disease. The goal of the FASMA APC is to improve patient outcomes by conducting innovative clinical trials and enrolling eligible patients into advanced research studies focused on wound healing and limb preservation.
Dr. Isaac completed his fellowship training in diabetic limb salvage at the renowned SALSA clinic (University of Arizona), under the direction of David G. Armstrong, DPM, MD, PhD. He is a frequent lecturer and author on topics related to amputation prevention and limb salvage, including advanced wound care, offloading and surgical reconstruction. Dr. Isaac has been the recipient of numerous awards, including Kaiser Permanente’s prestigious “Brilliant Star” Award for his work related to the use of a wireless, smart mat for prevention of diabetic foot ulcer recurrence in high-risk populations.
