Complications due to diabetes are the number-one cause of lower-leg amputations and account for nearly 86,000 amputations per year. Doctors estimate almost 50 percent of these amputations could have been prevented if the person had taken better care of their feet.

I made an appointment at a dermatology clinic affiliated with my hospital — I’m an assistant professor of medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College in Manhattan — and headed there one afternoon last spring.
