Temple University Hospital is home to a new center that specializes in saving legs. Under the direction of Temple's chief of vascular surgery, Eric Choi, the Limb Salvage Center assists diabetic and peripheral artery disease patients facing amputation. "We have a center now where patients can come in and we can converge on them instead of them going to see one specialist and another specialist. We are all on call to see the patients as needed. So it becomes a multidisciplinary type of approach and is much more patient-centered," said Choi.
