Better outcomes start with getting answers


Leg UP is not your typical disease awareness program.

We will not tell you what you already know. Rather we’re going to tell you what you need to know but don’t, giving you an advantage—or “leg up”—at your next medical appointment.


Leg UP began in 2016 when Dr. Hardeep S. Ahluwalia, founder of the California Vein and Vascular Centers, recognized that smokers and people with diabetic foot ulcers were uninformed of alternatives to amputation.

Dr. Ahluwalia aims to eventually reach all diabetic patients in and outside of the United States through social media, community events and partnerships with advocacy, professional and business organizations.


Leg UP gratefully accepts educational grants and soon will be registered as a 501(c) 3 organization.
