The causes of foot wounds are multifactorial. The specialized training undertaken by our podiatrists enables them to establish a diagnosis, select and apply the appropriate treatment for healing the wound and preventing the onset of additional ones.
Foot wounds are frequent and are mostly associated with problems like arterial, venous, neuropathic, mechanical, traumatic and other similar disorders. The podiatrist is the only health professional who can treat foot wounds (debridement, application of specialized dressings, etc.) and their underlying causes (using such solutions as foot orthosis specific to the injured foot, relief boot, “CROW” type boot, full-contact plaster, etc.).
