About Us

Diabetic Foot Society of India (DFSI) as it is popularly called is one of the few societies all over the world, dedicated only to Diabetic Foot. It was founded on 30th March 2002. Since then DFSI has been at the vanguard of training and sensitizing numerous medical and paramedical personnel through highly structured, innovative and state of the art educational programs all over the country and abroad as well.

DFSI has single handed achieved the transformation of the diabetic foot problems from a completely neglected complication to one which now is so well attended to by the numerous physicians, surgeons, anaesthesiologists and paramedics we have trained over last 12 years. It is now one of the large medical body admired for its work. DFSI has two landmark educational books published, distributed each of it free of cost to more than 10,000 people in the medical fraternity across India. These have become the reference material for all those who work with diabetic Foot.

The efforts of DFSI with the association of a research firm in Mumbai has resulted in the development of sensitive and standard equipment to quantitatively measure the neuropathic deficits enabling a practitioner to guide therapy, measure outcome of the therapy and also top precisely identify the risks associated with ulceration of diabetic foot. Millions of feet have been tested by these instruments creating a strong wave of awareness and care.

DFSI holding dialogues have stimulated many a manufacturers to experiment with the kind of footwear diabetic feet require as per various well understood principles. Many have manufactured and marketed them across India and improved their quality.

DFSI has conducted 48 one day workshops under the banner of National Wound Care Program sponsored and vetted by World Diabetes Foundation and Access to Health. The programs were conducted in Medical Colleges and have trained 2000 doctors and nurses in day to day wound management in diabetic foot. The National Wound Care Program will be started again in a while with the similar commitment.

DFSI has held 11 Annual State of the Art Conferences consecutively for the last 11 years which has brought in cutting edge research and newer treatment as well as diagnostic modalities to India, enhancing the knowledge level of foot practitioners.
