Charcot neuroarthropathy is a complicated phenomenon with the potential to cause significant deformity, morbidity, and mortality. Costs associated with Charcot-related complications are substantial, with thousands of amputations occurring annually. The purpose of this study was to retrospectively review a single surgeon's experience and record the 10-year mortality rate among patients after Charcot reconstruction at a single institution between 2007 and 2013. Lower-extremity limb salvage is crucial to reduce the burden of Charcot neuroarthropathy. This article provides an example of the potential long-term success of reconstruction surgery for this condition.
