Multidisciplinary Diabetic Foot and Wound Service
Three Disciplines, One Mission:
The Johns Hopkins Multidisciplinary Diabetic Foot and Wound Service is a comprehensive, inpatient and outpatient, multi-specialty aimed at healing the recurrent ulceration and decreasing rate of major amputations in diabetic patients. The team is composed of vascular surgeons, surgical podiatrists, endocrinologists, wound care nurses, advanced practice staff, board certified wound care specialists, orthopedic surgeons, infection disease experts, physical therapists and certified orthotists.
Since the clinic's inception in July 2012, we have performed over one thousand procedures aimed at limb preservation and we have one of the lowest major amputation rates in the country.

Vascular surgeons Christopher Abularrage and Caitlin Hicks discuss the team's philosophy of care, treatment options, research and outcomes.
“Dr. Abularrage and Dr. Sherman immediately impressed us by their aggressiveness in treating not just the outward signs of the foot wound but by searching for the root of the problem. What’s more is that the whole team – from the doctors, physician assistants and nurses to the office staff – really takes time to get to know patients. It’s just another illustration of how this team goes the extra mile.”
- Ron and Barb Pavlechko
“The entire team, from surgeons to the office staff are so personable and caring. I would highly recommend anyone having issues with their feet to go to the Johns Hopkins Diabetic Foot and Wound Clinic for their expertise and unique treatment options. They are a few steps above anyone I’ve ever dealt with.”
