Primary Care Foot Program

The Primary Care Foot Program has been established as a collaborative effort between Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin primary care clinics and the Medical College of Wisconsin Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Froedtert Hospital. It has been created to provide access for nonoperative foot and ankle disorders, with special focus on the diabetic population. Sarah Kaldem, nurse practitioner, has been hired to work in conjunction with the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, physical therapy and specialists in wound care and orthotics/brace fabrication to evaluate and treat foot and ankle problems and to provide nonoperative, preventive care for diabetic patients. Educational programs will also be established for a variety of foot and ankle disorders.

This integrative approach to the diagnosis and treatment of common foot and ankle disorders is designed to concentrate on preventive care for patients with nonoperative foot and ankle needs while facilitating access to specialized care. Diabetic care will include annual examination for diabetic foot care as well as nail, callus and wound care. Orthotic, shoe and brace services will be available to patients at each clinic location. Each clinic location will also be outfitted with appropriate materials for splinting, bracing, nail and callus care.
