"When I left the office I felt like I was walking on a cloud, almost no pain at all."
Common types of leg and foot injuries include the following:
It depends on the type of wound you have. In general, these ulcers start out as changes in skin texture or color and end up causing swelling, open sores, pus, and a noticeable odor. Having these wounds treated as early as possible helps reduce the risk of complications, such as severe infections.
Leg and foot wounds can develop due to different causes. Diabetic ulcers form from poor circulation, nerve damage, and other factors, while pressure ulcers form when there’s too much pressure for extended periods of time on the foot or leg. Venous and arterial leg ulcers develop from circulation problems with your veins or arteries.
It depends on the type of wound you have. Dr. Kimmel offers regenerative medicine to help promote healthy wound healing. He might also recommend other types of care based on the type and severity of your wound.
Dr. Kimmel uses Magellan® technology for Platelet Poor Plasma and Platelet Rich Plasma treatments, which help speed up the healing process and lower the risk of infections. These procedures use your body’s platelets to stimulate the healing process, leading to less downtime and faster healing.
Wound care using regenerative medicine varies concerning completion time, and the amount of time needed to recover. Dr. Kimmel will let you know how long your treatment should take, and how long the recovery process might be.
Dr. Kimmel performs regenerative medicine treatments at Buckeye Foot Care. You don’t need to be hospitalized for wound care unless you’ve developed an acute infection that requires emergency care.
