Treatment for Diabetic Wounds

It is essential that people who have diabetes keep their blood sugar levels under control to reduce the risk of slow-healing wounds and complications, including foot ulcers which will develop in about one of four diabetics. If you develop a wound, it is important to keep a close eye on it. In many cases, wounds will heal on their own as long as you clean them and keep them bandaged. However, there are occasions when a wound is serious enough that it requires medical attention. These are wounds that, for whatever reason, show no signs of healing after a week. This could be because the wound is infected or circulation is cut off from the wound, preventing it from healing.

Creating Your Treatment Plan

During your first appointment, we will perform a thorough evaluation of the wound including measuring the wound size and depth. This information will allow us to track the wound’s healing progress once treatment begins. We follow treatment protocols specifically established for each type of wound and remain current in new scientific advances in wound care. Our treatment methods include debridement, topical wound therapy, growth-factor therapy, tissue therapy, dressing selection, special shoes, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). Exposing wounds to 100% oxygen with HBOT is proven to speed healing for certain wounds. Your treatment plan will be personalized based on your specific needs.
