ALPS will bring together medical professionals, industry leaders and patient advocates to generate better care practices that will save limbs and lives.

REDWOOD CITY, CA, October 20th, 2020 – The American Limb Preservation Society (ALPS) has been established to advance the science and clinical care surrounding limb preservation. The Society will serve as an interdisciplinary bridge between both clinical specialties and organizations involved in lower limb preservation and foster the development of the next generation of clinicians and scientists.

“Every 20 seconds, someone around the world loses a limb because of diabetes. Every 20 seconds, this is a tragedy that shortens lives and limits potential. What we know is that when we put clinicians together that care about this problem, big change can happen,” said founding president David G. Armstrong, Professor of Surgery at Keck School of Medicine of University of Southern California. “That is what ALPS is all about. To be that interdisciplinary bridge to help eliminate preventable amputation over the next generation.”

In alignment with its goal to eradicate unnecessary amputation, ALPS will support programs and initiatives in limb preservation to promote education, collaboration and scientific and technological advancements. The Society will also support year-round efforts to advocate for best practices that champion prevention and lead to better health outcomes for patients at risk of limb-loss.

In conjunction with the American Podiatric Medical Association, the Society for Vascular Surgery and Vascular Cures, the ALPS will focus on enhancing knowledge and bringing together an interprofessional team of experts within fields such as podiatry, vascular surgery, physical therapy, and infectious diseases to establish better care for the high-risk lower extremity. We are welcoming associations from related fields to partner with ALPS.
