Types of wounds we treat

Our wound healing team treats a range of wounds, including non-healing foot or lower extremity wounds. We also treat patients with circulation disorders and individuals at risk for amputation. We provide wound management services for:

  • Arterial ulcers (open sores that result from poor blood flow to damaged arteries) of the lower extremities, feet and ankles
  • Breast and back wounds
  • Burns, including post-radiation wounds
  • Chronic venous ulcers (slow healing sores due to poor circulation) or venous insufficiency (condition where the veins in the leg are working insufficiently causing swelling)
  • Diabetic foot ulcers (open sores, typically on the bottom of the foot, found commonly in diabetic patients)
  • Gangrene (when body tissue dies due to a lack of blood supply)
  • Lymphedema wounds
  • Non-healing surgical wounds
  • Pressure ulcers (injury to the skin caused by prolonged periods of pressure on a certain area)
  • Pyoderma gangrenosum (rare condition indicated by large and painful sores on the skin) and other atypical wounds
  • Resistant bone infection wounds
  • Refractory osteomyelitis (chronic infection of the bone)
  • Sickle cell ulcers (leg ulcers that occur in patients with sickle cell disease)
  • Sports-related trauma wounds
  • Traumatic or infected wounds

Limb preservation services

Our team uses advanced technology and equipment to detect, treat and prevent vascular disorders, which can contribute to chronic wounds.

Given the associated mortality rate with end-stage peripheral arterial disease (PAD), known as critical limb ischemia (CLI), saving limbs means saving lives. The Wound Management and Limb Preservation Center is unique in that our specialists work alongside experts in vascular surgery and interventional cardiology to determine and execute the best treatment plan for each patient.

Treatment options include:

  • Advanced revascularization (the restoration of blood flow to tissues or an organ experiencing a blockage in normal blood flow)
  • Angioplasty without iodine contrast (minimally invasive procedure to restore blood flow to the heart by opening blocked arteries)
  • Chronic venous disease management (result of improper vein function)
  • Minimally invasive procedures to improve blood flow
  • Reconstruction of leg and foot blood vessels to prevent amputation
  • Relief of lifestyle limiting pain
  • Wound-directed therapy
