Foot Ulcers

Foot ulcers are the leading cause of lower-extremity amputations due to infection. The longer the wound remains open, the more likely it can become infected.

Here at Doral Health & Wellness Podiatry Center, we strive for the best. We work with the patient to successfully heal his or her ulcer by integrating advanced wound care products into our wound care management, facilitating closure of the wound.

Untreated foot ulcers can develop into foot infections that can be limb-threatening or life-threatening. Of note, the mortality rate at nine years is 68% for both diabetic and non-diabetic lower extremity amputees.
With that said, you must see a podiatrist if you have a lower extremity ulcer or wound so that you can be thoroughly and adequately taken care of. 

Things we can do to heal diabetic foot wounds
Ultraist – decrease bacteria on the wound and cleans the area.
MLS laser therapy to increase blood flow to the wound area
Regenerative skin grafts: We use many types of Amniotic and placental base skin grafts in the office.
• Vascular testing – a 3-minute test performed in the office to check blood flow to your feet. The doctor reads immediate results.
• Offloading with orthotics and wound healing shoes.

To see what your options are, visit us at 1797 Pitkin Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11212. Remember, we value limb preservation and will do everything that we can to preserve your limb!
