Wound Care for Diabetes-related Foot Problems
Diabetes-related foot problems, such as ulcers or sores, are most frequently caused by infection. Foot wounds can be difficult to heal, especially if you have diabetic neuropathy. The increased pressure from the feet carrying your body weight also aggravates foot wounds. Diabetic foot disease is a serious threat and must be managed diligently. That’s why we offer comprehensive wound care, including negative pressure wound therapy, for our diabetic patients.
