Restorative Diabetic Footwear

Proper footwear is an important part of your overall diabetic treatment program. Michael Pearlman, D.P.M., F.A.C.F.S. in Waldorf, Maryland, offers diabetic footwear by Surefit™, which will help to reduce pain and pressure.

The Surefit Diabetic Footwear Program

Medicare patients who are diabetic and have a qualifing condition are entitled to a pair of extra depth shoes and three pairs of custom molded inserts every year.

The Importance of Proper Footwear

Proper footwear provides the support and protection that is essential for the patient with diabetes. Diabetic patients can develop sores or infections from shoes that are not fitted or selected properly.

Patients with neuropathy (loss of sensation in the foot) may develop sores from poorly fitting shoes without even knowing it. Patients with bunions, hammertoes, or other foot deformities can prevent these conditions from worsening by wearing proper footwear.

Custom Molded Inserts

Our office provides our patients with the highest level of care with custom fabricated diabetic inserts. An impression of your foot is sent to our lab for a truly custom made device.

Custom inserts provide your foot with the support and protection needed to relieve pressure points that could cause hard to heal lesions. If you have had an ulcer on a particular area of your foot, using custom inserts can reduce the chance of recurrence. Ask if the therapeutic footwear program is right for you. Medicare has recognized the importance of proper footwear as part of a comprehensive plan of treatment for diabetic patients. The therapeutic footwear program has been established as a preventive program to lower the incidence of diabetic foot complications.
