Sanford Health has announced a new limb preservation program.  The Sanford Limb Preservation Center specializes in treating lower extremity wounds in patients at high risk of amputation and compromised leg and toe function, particularly those with diabetes and peripheral arterial disease.  The Center also includes Sanford Health's wound clinic, which is home to nurses trained in managing and treating acute infections of the lower extremities.  Dr. Patrick Kelly, a vascular surgeon at the Sanford Limb Preservation Center, explained what the center does and how it is helping patients.
