The results of the treatment of 112 patients operated for the purulent-necrotic complications of diabetic foot syndrome were analyzed. At the outpatient stage, 38 patients underwent rehabilitation — a complex of physical exercises and physiotherapy. Necrectomy, dissection and drainage of phlegmon and abscesses, finger amputation, transmetatarsal amputation of the foot, amputation at the level of the hip and shin were used. The course of physical exercises was 3 weeks, diadynamic- and magnet therapy — 10 procedures. Rehabilitation measures were carried out 3 times during 6 months. During rehabilitation measures the number of complications in 6 months decreased by 1.6, in 1 year — by 1.5 times.
