Ulcer Care

When you get an ulcer on your foot, there are many different treatment options. All ulcers require offloading the wound by using appropriate therapeutic footwear, a surgical shoe, or walking boot. Daily dressing changes will be required to keep the wound clean and dry , and to provide a moist wound environment. Debridement is usually required to promote healing to the area. Sometimes it is also necessary to be referred to hyperbaric oxygen therapy. In severe cases or when infection results, antibiotic therapy is needed. Other facts that contribute to wound healing are diabetes, circulatory problems, and poor diet. Call our office immediately with any new signs of skin breakdown.
