Desert Foot Conference 2017


Elmwood Park Foot and Ankle Surgeon Attends Desert Foot Conference

Seminar to increase Awareness on Diabetic and Non-Diabetic Foot Disorders

CHICAGO, Jan. 24, 2018 – Dr. Ronald W. Hugar, of Hugar Foot & Ankle Specialists was one of the many wound care experts who joined fellow healthcare professionals in Phoenix, Arizona for the 2017 Desert Foot Multi-Disciplinary Limb Salvage Conference from November 29 to December 2, 2017. By attending, Dr. Hugar received updated information on the most recent surgical & non-surgical advancements of lower-limb saving techniques to share with his patients.

The educational conference highlighted ways to treat chronic wounds and obtain limb salvage with enhanced techniques of proper healing. Hands-on workshops on how to identify key infection signs in the diabetic foot were also available and attended. Discussions about what makes treating a diabetic foot different from a non-diabetic foot were explored along with investigations of new wound-care technology. Professionals who attended this conference learned the most up-to-date training methods to help provide the most efficient and cost effective treatment plans for their patients, and Dr. Hugar is part of this dedicated medical team.

“The Desert Foot Conference provided me with updated techniques that I will carry with me, no matter if I’m performing hospital surgery or in-office patient wound care. Diabetes foot-related problems are becoming more common and from chronic diabetic foot ulcers to severe infections, the conference covered the latest standard of care treatment methods,” said Dr. Hugar, podiatric physician and surgeon.

Dr. Hugar practices at Hugar Foot & Ankle Specialists in Elmwood Park, IL. He specializes in podiatric care, regardless of a patient’s age and emphasizes the importance of early detection for lower limb wounds to help prevent serious conditions. He is a Member of the American Podiatric Medical Association and Fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons. To reach Dr. Hugar, call (708) 452-6100.
