Lower Extremity Wounds
Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late!
If you have experienced lower extremity wounds, sores on your feet, or have had a history of a recent lower extremity or foot surgery that is not healing as rapidly as you or your doctor would expect, you may have a component of peripheral arterial disease or venous disease which is contributing to the wound or the delayed wound healing.
The expert physicians at Lafayette Cardiovascular Center of Excellence can provide rapid diagnosis and the most advanced treatments available for peripheral arterial disease or venous disease that can cause poor wound healing. When left untreated, poor wound healing often results in wound infection, leading to lower extremity amputation.
If you have had a recent amputation without an angiogram, or picture of the blood flow to the affected limb, you may have undiagnosed peripheral arterial disease.
We specialize in improving blood flow to and from the lower extremities to enhance wound healing and prevent amputation.
If you have already had a partial amputation, or have delayed wound healing, contact us so that we can ensure you are getting adequate blood flow to and from the affected area to minimize your risk of recurrent infection, further amputation, and improve wound healing.
