The Amputation Crisis of African American Patients

February 5, 2021  – Thank you, Alton Johnson Jr., DPM, CPWS, for this powerful reminder, via Wound Source, of the challenges and inequities Black patients face in managing their diabetes and overcoming chronic wounds.

"The intention behind my blogs is to share the many observations made within the clinical setting. I want us to be advocates for our patients. We are healers because we have the opportunities to build a rapport with our patients and better understand what they endure day to day compared with our colleagues. I know the statistics may reveal poor outcomes for African American patients when it comes to limb salvage and wound healing. However, I know that if we approach each of those patients as individuals, we can change the narrative and flip the statistics. These patients have social lives, work and professional lives, and families to support, so each encounter brings us one step closer to saving not only a limb but a life." Alton Johnson Jr., DPM, CWSP via Wound Source
