About The Releford Foot and Ankle Institute
The Releford Foot & Ankle Institute’s mission is to effectively decrease the diabetes-related amputation rate in Los Angeles and surrounding communities by providing comprehensive wound care and limb salvage services.

Dr. Releford’s community outreach and health-care advocacy efforts are facilitated through the Diabetic Amputation Prevention Foundation (DAP), a non-profit organization he founded in 2001. Its mission is to educate at-risk populations to better understand diabetes and its complications through community-based programs.

Dr. Releford and the DAP Foundation have been recognized for the success of the Black Barbershop Health Outreach Program. Since its inception in December 2007, the program has screened over 25,000 men for diabetes and hypertension in more than 450 black-owned barbershops in over 26 cities.
