Many approaches are being experimented to manage this major complication of diabetic foot, but unfortunately with lower success rate. Stem cell is an upcoming field which is being explored in the world of diabetes. Hence, this review is designed to understand the basic pathogenesis and complications of types of diabetes and the role of stem cells in a diabetic wound and the benefits related to it.
