Limb Preservation & Wound Healing
While most wounds heal in time, millions of Americans suffer from chronic, non-healing wounds of their lower extremity, that negatively affect their life. With early intervention and appropriate treatment, Dr. Kimmel and Buckeye Foot Care, can help eliminate any pain, prevent disfigurement and save patients from losing their limb. At Buckeye Foot Care, we work closely with other medical specialists to help treat systemic conditions that might interfere with the healing of your wound.
These are the typical ulcers we treat:
- Arterial Ulcers of the foot and leg
- Venous Ulcers of the Leg
- Diabetic Foot Ulcers
- Non or Slow Healing Surgical or Traumatic wounds
- Dry Gangrene
- Pressure Ulcers
If your physician has mentioned amputation as a possible outcome of your condition, contact the experts at Buckeye Foot Care another opinion. With your permission, our wound healing team can discuss with your physician your situation and potential alternative treatments that may result in a more positive outcome.
