What to Do If You Spot a Potential Diabetic Foot Ulcer
Not to sound like a broken record, but when it comes to diabetic ulcers—or even the potential for diabetic ulcers—it’s much better to be safe than sorry. The possible consequences of acting too slowly can be devastating.
The best way to curtail the risk of a wound developing into a serious infection is to begin treatment with a diabetic wound care expert as soon as possible. If you live in and around Waco, trusting your feet to the team at Waco Foot & Ankle is a decision that could literally save your foot, if not your life. And if another doctor has told you that you need an amputation, please seek out a second opinion from us IMMEDIATELY—we may still be able to help!
Our advanced wound care services include state-of-the-art therapies, including one of the only amniotic membrane graft products on the market that is not dehydrated and contains living, viable cells. This makes it an exceptional wound covering, because not only does it keep germs out, but it also accelerates the healing process and helps your skin rapidly construct new tissue.
If you’d like to learn more about this incredible therapy and how it has helped us save patients from severe wounds and almost certain amputation, be sure to check out this previous blog post.
