Vivian A. Fonseca, MD, who specializes in diabetes at Tulane University said a considerable amount of work has been done at the Louisiana institution to help treat this condition but that more work remains to be done. Fonseca noted that while amputation was at one time a common treatment practice it has been used much less regularly in recent years.
