Chronic Wound Care
At the Podiatry Institute in Palm Harbor, Fla., Dr. Fine is a recognized expert in the care of chronic foot and ankle wounds including but not limited to diabetic ulcers, bed sores, infected post-operative incisions and more. Wounds that fail to heal over a period of 12 weeks or more require a comprehensive treatment plan and frequent evaluation by the doctor. Diabetics and patients with blood clotting disorders or an underlying medical condition that impairs blood flow to the lower extremities are at risk for slow-healing wounds, which are susceptible to a dangerous infection. If you have a lesion, cut, or any type of open sore that refuses to heal on your foot or ankle, it is very important to seek medical attention as soon as possible.
