MSFAS and Vascular Access Centers Collaborate to SAVE LIMBS and LIVES

On April 29th, Dr. Christian Smith had the pleasure of speaking and presenting a lecture about diabetic foot problems, poor circulation, and treatment options to the Mid-South Nephrology Nursing Association. The presentation was a collaboration between MSFAS and Ryan Deedy from Vascular Access Centers.

Diabetes is the number one reason for non-traumatic limb loss in the United States. Statistics show that if a person loses a limb it shortens their life expectancy considerably.

MSFAS doctors have years of experience and are working everyday to treat and save limbs and lives.

If you or a loved one has a wound or poor circulation to the feet or ankles, please make an appointment immediately. Our doctors and caring staff would love to see you and take care of any complications you may have!
