From the website:
Different foot and ankle specialists will use different treatment methodologies based on their evaluation and the severity of your condition. Currently, there is not a standard treatment protocol and your treatment is at the discretion of your surgeon. Below is for your information and should not be considered a prescribed treatment protocol.
In some cases, when ulcers are not healing properly with non-surgical treatment methods or wound care attempts are not working, the patient may require surgical intervention to re-stabilize the affected foot. There are various procedures to treat a Charcot Foot, all of which rely on the variables of your specific condition, as no two patients are the same.
