Non-Healing Foot Wounds
Diagnosing and Treating Non-Healing Foot Wounds
Foot and ankle wounds are common, yet serious medical conditions. If left untreated, they can lead to infection, amputation, or loss of life. For this reason, it is important to seek medical advice from a qualified foot and ankle specialist as soon as possible if you are concerned about any kind of wound.
At our podiatry practice, we offer comprehensive assessment and treatment of all types of foot and ankle wounds. Our specialists are highly trained in diagnosing the underlying causes of chronic non-healing foot wounds. We take a multi-faceted approach to ensure that our patients get the best possible care for their condition.
We specialize in treating various kinds of foot wounds such as diabetic non-healing wounds, puncture wounds, gout wounds, and soft tissue or bone infections. First, we conduct an initial examination where we assess the size, depth, and location of the wound to determine its severity. Then our team will develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. This may include antibiotics, topical ointments or creams, wound dressings, and possibly surgery if necessary.
Our treatment plans also focus on prevention measures such as changing footwear regularly and keeping feet dry to reduce the risk of further infections or re-injury. Regular care visits with your specialist will be scheduled so that progress can be monitored closely. When a wound is healing properly it may need additional support such as compression wraps or special shoes to keep them protected while they heal.
Chronic non-healing foot wounds can have significant physical, emotional, and financial consequences if they remain untreated. At our practice, we determine the root cause of your wound so that you can start healing quickly and safely before any further damage occurs. Our team is dedicated to providing quality care throughout each step of the recovery process so that you can get back on your feet again as soon as possible!
