Treatment for Wounds caused by Diabetic Neuropathy, Peripheral Artery Disease, and others
Cuts, scrapes, and blisters are common injuries that aren’t always treated promptly or effectively. Most heal rapidly, but when a wound fails to heal in a timely manner it can be a cause for concern.
People with diabetes – particularly those with diabetic neuropathy or peripheral artery disease – are at increased risk for developing foot infections that result in non-healing wounds and ulcers. If these ulcers are not treated promptly with an aggressive wound care program, the infection can spread until amputation is the only treatment option.
At Cincinnati Foot & Ankle Care, we take wound care seriously by using state-of-the-art healing technologies right in our office to ensure the best possible outcomes. All of our board-certified podiatrists have advanced training in diabetic limb salvage, including management of diabetic foot infections and treatment of diabetic wounds.
We offer personalized wound care, including the latest medical and surgical treatment options, to help ensure limb preservation for diabetic wound care patients.
Other wounds we treat include:
- Venous and arterial wounds – Vascular leg wounds can be debilitating, significantly affecting your quality of life. At Cincinnati Foot & Ankle Care, our goal is to help heal these wounds and get you on your feet and moving again.
- Surgical and traumatic wounds – Foot and ankle wounds that are slow to heal following surgery or a traumatic injury can be limb threatening, which is why our foot doctors utilize cutting-edge technologies to help heal your wound as swiftly as possible.
If you are diabetic and have a skin injury on your feet or ankles, seek treatment immediately. For an appointment with one of our wound care experts, call us at the location nearest to you or request one online.
