Diabetology Department

The Diabetology department is managed by Dr Olivier Dupuy.

The department operates within the Cardiac, neurovascular and metabolism centre, it applies the latest specialist vascular treatment and pain management techniques. It coordinates with the obesity surgery centre.

The hospital uses its complete technical platform in combination with the complementarity of its departments to form a diabetic foot treatment structure assured by a multidisciplinary specialist team with perfectly suited facilities.  Since all such treatments must be applied as quickly as possible the diabetology department proposes emergency medical-surgical consultations and hospitalisations with specialist vascular medicine, vascular surgery and infectiology consultancies.
