If you are at risk of Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD), it’s recommended to get a vascular screening every year!
(PAD) Peripheral Artery Disease is a condition where deposits, called calcium or plaque, build up over time on the inside walls of the arteries in your legs. This build up causes the arteries to narrow, reducing blood flow to the legs and feet. Call 727-888-2324 to schedule a free screening.
The management of wounds can pose major challenges for both patients and their caregivers. Benefiting from state-of-the-art technologies and specialized teams of wound care experts, patients not only receive superior treatment of their wounds, but also the underlying issues causing them.
Contributions by podiatrists to the emerging and evolving specialty of wound management are numerous and have provided essential evidence supporting successful treatment of wounds over the push to amputate. Crucial to healing of diabetic, neuropathic, and other plantar foot ulcers is podiatric expertise pertaining to lower extremity biomechanics, structural deformities, and the nuances of both surgical and nonsurgical interventions used to treat these wounds.
The Team Approach
As wound care and amputation prevention providers, we are all too keenly aware of the necessity of the "team approach" to wound management. The wound is often a symptom of more complicated underlying conditions and comorbidities. Patients afflicted with chronic wounds typically have a much higher level of acuity than do patients who do not present with non-healing wounds.
