Program for Advanced Limb Preservation
The Program for Advanced Limb Preservation (PALP) at Weill Cornell Medicine specializes in treating patients with vascular disease or diabetes who are high risk for foot and leg amputation. PALP is an interdisciplinary team of vascular specialists, podiatrists and many other experts dedicated solely to healing wounds and preventing amputations in patients with diabetes, peripheral artery disease (PAD), and other vascular problems. With appropriate treatment most amputations can be prevented and PALP provides comprehensive and advanced treatment alternatives to major limb amputation for patients with serious foot and leg problems caused by diabetes and PAD. PALP is New York City's only tertiary limb salvage program that provides comprehensive diagnostic evaluation, advanced wound care treatments including hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), surgical and minimally invasive vascular procedures, reconstructive foot surgery, and investigational treatments like stem-cell therapy at a single location. By considering all of our patients' needs the PALP team works collaboratively to heal wounds, improve blood flow, prevent recurrence, and keep patients walking.
