Chronic wounds may be caused by a wide range of conditions. Particularly,
wounds of the foot can be a serious complication of diabetes, and our
team helps at-risk diabetic patients control and manage their wounds.
Diabetes often leads to poor circulation and nerve damage (neuropathy),
which can lead to a wide range of foot problems, including foot ulcers
and wounds that refuse to heal. Left untreated, these wounds can cause
severe infections and may even result in amputation. Together with the
experts of our related
Center for Wound Healing, the
Wound & Hyperbaric Center team offers a complete range of individualized patient education and treatment
plans designed to help diabetic patients overcome their long-term foot problems.
