Occasionally even the smallest blister, sore, or cut on the foot can worsen and pose more severe consequences to foot health and overall well-being. This scenario is especially common in people with diabetes for whom foot infections and their complications are the leading cause of hospitalization. In fact, according to statistics, more than 60% of non-traumatic lower limb amputations occur in people with diabetes.
In cases of problematic cuts or ulcerations, our office provides the skilled and advanced care required to both protect the foot from developing an infection and treat an existing infection to help accelerate the healing process. When indicated, our podiatrists work as part of an interdisciplinary medical team to optimize healing, protect overall health, and restore function.
