Why Isn’t My Foot Wound Healing?

Stephen D. Lasday, DPM Diabetic Foot Care, Podiatrist Sarasota and Bradenton

Are you diabetic and have a foot wound that isn’t healing? It’s critical you take action to prevent a catastrophic outcome, so read on to learn more!

Diabetics face special challenges when it comes to wound healing. Due to decreased circulation problems and decreased blood flow, wounds take much longer to heal. Diabetics  also have decreased ability to fight infection.

West Coast Podiatry is uniquely positioned to help you achieve the best outcome possible. We are on the cutting edge of  all the latest wound healing products and techniques. And we are the only podiatry group in the Sarasota-Bradenton area that has privileges in all of the local hospitals that have wound centers, which includes Manatee Memorial Hospital, Doctor’s Hospital, and Sarasota Memorial Hospital. 

We know the quicker a diabetic wound is healed, the greater the patient’s chances are preventing amputation. Listen to the video below to learn more and how you can save your feet. 

If you would like to learn more about taking care of your feet, or if you are experiencing ankle or heel problems, Sarasota or Bradenton is the place to be! Please schedule an appointment with Dr. Lasday, Dr. Zdancewicz, or Dr. Goecker for a thorough and professional evaluation, either in their Bradenton Podiatry office or Sarasota Podiatry office.
