    What screening protocols are US podiatrists using pre-operatively. Factor Five Leiden, MTHR, hx of hormonal (oral contraceptives, post menopausal meds, cardiac sounds that may be suggestive of valvular anomaly? I.e., split 2nd heart sound. Are US trained foot doctors able to evaluate the totality of the patient rather than the local deformity? These, and several issues have been discussed, and have seen these simple medical protocols neglected because there's often a rush to procedure instead of a total evaluation of the patient. Why three years post DPM do not adequately prepare 'surgeons' to understand the fundamentals followed by the medical community. For decades many sites dismiss, censor and ban questions of these sorts. But change is coming to the US, and the absence of training becoming clear. I've only listed a few items, but I had the podiatry US experience before MD school and seven years residency. Seems like 'how to bill' is tantamount with pricy seminars on 'how to bill' take precedence. No changes in the podiatry world in the US in decades but following the ABMS increasing post graduate training. Recall the Project 2015. The 'select' best and brightest of podiatry' failed by so great a margin they were deemed a public health hazard. CHANGE in podiatry with enhanced education has been the goal instead of recruiting students with marginal marks to qualify as physicians. I have seen, over the decades totally neglected history and physical examination resulting in lawsuits. If podiatry in the US is going to survive the education must be implemented because the nurse practitioner and physician assistant seem more knowledgeable about the body instead of the latest news of podiatry losing E and M value which other insurance companies will likely follow. The word 'physician' is included in the original medicare guidelines, but doubt that will remain. OF COURSE THIS WILL BE CALLED A TROLL POST, but look in the mirror and do the math. I am angry because had two patients this year with sepsis resulting in cardiac valve replacement. Podiatry schools and leaders are businessmen who want to continue a charade that has litigated its way up the leg to increase potentially life threatening procedures. BAN CENSOR TROLL - Then pay off those student loans cutting nails.
