Ehud Giladi thinks the Amputation Prevention Center saved his life.

Giladi, known as “Udi” to friends and family, knew he was in trouble in November 2010 when he summoned his son to help remove a sock from his foot.

Giladi is a diabetic and had been badly overweight for years. His left foot had developed neuropathy – the loss of feeling in extremities common to diabetics.
