Treatment of the patient with a diabetic foot infection and underlying osteomyelitis is currently an evolving process, often complicated by neuropathy, peripheral vascular disease, and renal insufficiency. Understanding which patients require hospitalization, intravenous antibiotic therapy, and urgent operative intervention may ultimately prevent the spread of infection or major limb amputation. The treating surgeon should focus on accurate and early diagnosis, proper antibiosis, and appropriate surgical debridement to eradicate infection while preserving function with a plantar-grade foot.
