Hypothesis: Surgical treatment of osteomyelitis in diabetic foot is more effective that medical treatment through antibiotherapy and leads wound healing in ulcers complicated with bone infection. Material and Methods: Randomized clinical trials which include two groups of patients (n=88), one receives medical treatment through antibiotherapy during 90 days and the other group receive conservative surgical treatment and antibiotics during 7 days after surgery. It will be studied differences between both groups in healing time, recidives, present and relationship of adverse events and outflow of quality of life related health .
