Our Approach to Diabetic Foot Wound Care
“Diabetic wounds” refers to a multitude of injuries, including cuts, blisters, bruises, bumps, burns, and calluses. Anything out of the ordinary can potentially lead to a serious medical complication when you have diabetes.
We divide diabetic wounds into two general categories: internal origin and external origin. Internally originating wounds include anything produced by the body. This may refer to blisters, calluses, corns, and more. External wounds are injuries that happen outside the body, and may include cuts, scrapes, and lacerations.
Regardless of origin, all diabetic wounds put you at risk for complications, especially ulcers. Ulcers may fill with fluid that later gets infected. Any infection can lead to severe podiatric issues.
Our primary goal is a fast recovery to lower chances of infection.
This involves taking pressure off the area, applying medications, and using dressing to keep it unexposed. In severe cases, we may perform a debridement procedure, where dead skin and tissue are surgically removed.
