Pulling up the pants leg

One of the paradoxical things in podiatric practices across the country is the propensity for doctors to miss pathology that is right in front of them, hiding right under their patients’ pants legs in the form of venous insufficiency or venous-related leg ulcers. Missing this phenomenally common pathology not only costs your patients dearly, it will also result in tens of thousands of dollars of lost revenue in your practice over the course of a year.
