Dr. Daniel Johnson re-opened his practice, the Foot & Ankle International, in 2017. He has created a bigger, even better environment for his patients. Foot and Ankle International is a group of podiatric medical doctors and surgeons on a mission to solve the problem with the diabetic foot wreaking havoc on the population. Dr. Johnson indicated that they have embarked upon project LEAP (Lower Extremity Amputation Prevention) which seeks to address the prevalence of amputations in diabetics. Dr. Johnson stressed that often times surgeons sometimes remove an apparently rotting toe, foot or portion of a leg to save the rest of the body. Dr. Johnson was quoted as saying that "Putting our money where our mouths are, investing massively in the old adage that an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure. We are looking at sports medicine, regenerative medicine and healthy lifestyles." The LEAP program will not only focus on surgery, but will also have a heavy focus on preventative care, teaching diabetics how to prevent the maladies of the condition. The doctors will be teaming with sports franchises and health and wellness facilities to produce the best outcome for diabetics.
Dr. Johnson's motto is, "When you preserve a limb, you preserve a life". Dr. Johnson also added that "by implementing healthier lifestyles, patients can avoid the habits that lead to heart attack or stroke and greatly improve the quality of their lives". Finally, Dr. Johnson wanted everyone to know that, "What we are doing at Foot and Ankle International is really putting 90 per cent of our resources, time and energy into a preventative model and I think we will see great results. Let's see what we could do to improve the lives of our people."
