We treat all wounds from the knee down. Wounds may be associated with complications of diabetes, varicose veins, and trauma. The most important element for healing is circulation. Many conditions such as diabetes, smoking, and age can diminish the blood flow to your legs, feet, and toes. Keeping this in mind, wound care is a team approach. Coordination between vascular surgeons, interventional radiologists, primary care physicians and possibly your endocrinologist is imperative for successful treatment. It is essential to treat the underlying cause of the wound and to decrease the possibility of recurrence.
