Treatment of a complex disease as the diabetic foot requires a multidisciplinary management with the close collaboration of a team for care. The most important members of the team are the diabetologist as coordinator, the vascular surgeon, the orthopedist, the radiologist, the orthopedic technician, the podiatrist and the nurse specialist. The care based on this arrangement should be carried out in dedicated rooms and times to exploit at best the organizational potential in the patient's interest, implemented in the foot clinic.
