Those who suffer from chronic wounds understand the headaches and worry involved with open sores on their extremity.

Stop your suffering today and contact our Richmond, Virginia Lower Extremity Advanced Wound Care team.

Diabetic Ulcers

A diabetic wound can come in many forms on the feet, heels, ankles, or toes for those patients who suffer from diabetes. Diabetes effects blood flow and the sense of feeling.  In many patients, there is little to no feeling in the feet and the patient doesn’t even realize they have an open sore.  In other patients, blood flow is compromised which leads to chronic non healing. Our team has protocols that work to resolve diabetic wounds quickly. Our goal is to prevent amputations and get our diabetic patients back to a normal life, free of dressing changes and doctor appointments.

Vascular Wounds

A major source of wounds around or near the ankle are vascular related. Blood flow is a must for wound healing! Any issues with blood flow can cause a major delay in wound healing. Without blood flow, tissue becomes “dead” or necrotic, leading to a yellow looking film over the wound.  Once the yellow “stuff” develops, infection can set in leading to a bone infection.  A major belief in our protocols is to restore blood flow, treat and prevent infection, and to offload the wound.  If you suspect a vascular wound, please make an appointment with our team right away.

Leg Wounds

Wounds that occur on the legs are commonly called venous stasis ulcers.  In many cases, swelling in the legs causes the skin to become very thin and fragile. Once the skin starts to break down, redness, drainage, and sometimes pain rapidly onsets. If infection and swelling are not quickly controlled, a wound will open as a very small opening on the leg. It takes just a couple of weeks for the venous stasis ulcer to take over a majority of the leg.  Venous stasis ulcers lead to hospitalizations and even amputation. It is very important that you seek care before your wound gets to this state!
