Dr. Tyson Green Presents Research at Diabetic Conference


Foot and ankle specialist Tyson Green, DPM, with Center for Orthopaedics, took part in one of the most extensive research projects to date evaluating bone health in diabetics and their higher risk compared to the general population. This study focused on lower extremity fractures in the diabetic population, particularly how the risk for foot and ankle fracture is higher in this group.
 
His study found that surgically repaired ankle fractures had worse outcomes and higher complications within the diabetic population than the non-diabetic population. Dr. Green has a special interest in diabetic foot care and is available to speak to area groups on this topic.
