Ulcers (Wound Care)

Foot ulcers and wounds can be challenging to manage and require specialized care to promote healing and prevent complications. At Wigley Feet, our experienced podiatrists are dedicated to providing comprehensive wound care treatments to help you achieve optimal healing and foot health.

Understanding Foot Ulcers and Wounds: Foot ulcers and wounds are commonly caused by a combination of factors, including poor circulation, diabetes, neuropathy, and pressure on the feet. These conditions can lead to open sores that are slow to heal and are at risk of infection.

Our Approach to Treatment: At Wigley Feet, we understand the importance of proper wound care for promoting healing and preventing further complications. Our comprehensive approach to ulcer and wound care includes the following steps:

  1. Thorough Assessment: Our skilled podiatrists will conduct a thorough evaluation of your ulcers or wounds, considering factors such as size, depth, location, and any signs of infection. This assessment guides us in creating a personalized treatment plan.

  2. Wound Debridement: Removing dead or infected tissue from the wound is crucial for promoting healing. Our podiatrists may perform wound debridement using various methods to ensure a clean wound bed.

  3. Infection Management: If there are signs of infection, our team will take prompt action to address it. This may involve prescribing antibiotics or other appropriate interventions to prevent the spread of infection.

  4. Offloading and Pressure Relief: For ulcers caused by pressure, our experts will recommend offloading techniques to reduce pressure on the affected area. This could involve custom orthotics, specialized footwear, or other devices.

  5. Advanced Wound Dressings: We utilize advanced wound dressings that are designed to create a moist environment that supports healing. These dressings promote tissue regeneration and help prevent infection.

  6. Collaborative Care: Our podiatrists work closely with other healthcare professionals, such as vascular specialists and wound care nurses, to ensure a comprehensive approach to your treatment.

Promote Healing and Prevent Complications: At Wigley Feet, our priority is to help you achieve optimal healing and prevent complications associated with foot ulcers and wounds. Our specialized wound care treatments are tailored to your specific needs, promoting faster healing and improved foot health.

Don’t let foot ulcers and wounds hinder your quality of life.
