Diabetic Wound Treatment

People who suffer from diabetes are at risk for serious complications, particularly foot problems. Minor wounds on the feet, like sores and ulcers, can worsen, leading in many cases to amputation. The rate of amputation among diabetics is 10 times higher than the rate among those who do not have diabetes, so it's important that those with diabetes seek treatment for even small wounds.

A physician can perform a thorough evaluation of a foot wound or sore, checking the blood circulation to the area, cleaning the sore and recommending treatment. Early intervention is key, because wounds and sores in diabetic patients can worsen rapidly.

Unlike a typical wound care center with dressing changes, we use advanced modalities including dermal skin substitutes to heal an ulcer quickly and eliminate amputations. We act aggressively and work in conjunction with a network of local providers such as endocrinology, neurology, infectious disease, etc. Each patient is important to us and we take pride in getting the best results for our patients. Our facilities include a convenient on-site surgical center for procedures should that be necessary.

Statistics say that if the wound has not significantly improved in 4 weeks, then the wound has a low chance of healing without advanced care. If you or a loved one have a foot ulcer, call our office for an immediate appointment.
