The fact that your: dad has already had several toes amputated generally means he has poor circulation in his leg(s). He should be seen by a Vascular Specialist who can determine if there are any NON SURGICAL treatments (eg STENTING) vs what surgical procedures will improve the circulation in his legs. Hope this is helpful! Dr Z
