Lower Extremity Wounds

Lower Extremity Wounds

Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late!

When you’re dealing with lower extremity wounds or sores on your feet, or if you’ve had a recent lower extremity or foot surgery that is not healing as rapidly as you or your doctor would expect, it’s possible that peripheral arterial disease or venous disease may be contributing to the wound or causing delays in the wound healing process. Poor wound healing and subsequent wound infection can result in lower extremity amputation.

The expert medical team at Louisiana Cardiology and Nephrology Center of Excellence have the skill and technology to rapidly diagnose and treat peripheral arterial disease or venous disease that may be causing poor wound healing.

The latest angiogram technology helps our medical professional see a clear picture of the blood flow to the extremities. If you have had a recent amputation without an angiogram, 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 are suffering through 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.
