Wounds Treated by our Team

Our Wound Care Centers of Excellence are equipped with the expertise and cutting-edge technology to treat a wide range of wounds. We also treat internal conditions that show up on your skin and other organs or affect your feet. Our treatment methods focus on both healing and prevention.

Acute & Chronic Wounds

We specialize in treating a wide range of complex, acute, and chronic wounds. Our therapies are meant help to change the state of chronic wounds, ones that are “stuck” at one stage of healing, to actively healing wounds. Some of the wounds we treat are:

Gangrenous wounds

Traumatic wounds

Post-surgical wounds

Pressure ulcers

Diabetic ulcers

Venous leg ulcers

Neuropathic ulcers


Other Conditions Treated

Vascular (blood flow) and neurological problems (with the nerves) impact all parts of our bodies. Because our skin is the largest organ of the body, it is affected when blood supply is restricted to it. Our skin and extremities are also affected when the nerves connecting the skin to other parts of the body are damaged. A lot of internal body issues show through on our skin, legs and feet, and arms and hands. The symptoms and treatments for these such vary greatly. Below are some of these conditions.


Acrocyanosis is a disorder that affects the arteries that supply blood full of oxygen and nutrients to the skin covering your hands and feet. People who have this condition don’t feel anything on the outside, but inside there are spasms occurring that block the blood flow. When this happens, the skin loses oxygen and changes to a dark blue to purple color, which is called cyanosis. Acrocyanosis can indicate a serious medical illness, such as cardiovascular or connective tissue disease.


Blue or purple skin discoloration

Feet that are persistently cold

Sweaty or moist skin



Keeping the foot warm and circulating with blood normally

Wearing insulated boots or socks to maintain normal skin temperature

Thin polypropylene liner socks to get excess moisture away from the skin


Chilblains occurs when the skin has an abnormal reaction to cold temperature. People with poor circulation in the feet are more likely to have this condition. Itchy and red swelling tends to happen on the skin, which can increasingly become painful and leaving cracks in the skin that can open a risk of infection. This typically happens on the toes, fingers, face, ear lobes, and areas of the feet that are exposed to pressure.


Burning & Itching

Swelling or Redness

Breaks in Skin



Keeping the body, especially hands and feet, dry

Warming the body and applying heat

Applying lotion to alleviate itching

Antiseptic dressing if it becomes ulcerated

Ischemic Foot

Ischemic foot has a wide variety of possible causes, but it forms a lack of adequate blood flow from the heart to the foot. Blockage, blood clots, spasms, or injury of the arteries can lead to this condition. When this happens, a person cannot get bloody supply reaching the foot to give them the oxygen and nutrients they need for cells to function properly.


Cold feet

Discoloration in the toes

Muscle cramping

Ulcers and pain


Walking exercises to increase blood flow

Wearing protective shoes and socks

Medications to treat arteries

Venous Stasis

Venous stasis is a condition that results in losing proper function in the leg veins that usually bring blood back toward the heat. Injury to the veins can occur, which then forms blood clots in the superficial veins or deep veins. As more fluid and pressure builds up, some of this blood can leak out of the veins and into your skin.


Swelling of the legs and ankles

Enlarged veins

Fullness, aching, or tiredness in the legs

Worsened symptoms when standing




Compression stockings

Ointment to relieve itchiness

Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy is a condition caused by damage to the nerves, especially in the foot. The nerves can be damaged by prolonged consumption of alcohol; the main component of alcoholic beverages, ethanol, is toxic to nerve tissue, and can lead to permanent loss of sensation in the feet and hands. This condition is similar to those caused by nerve damage due to diabetes. Damage to the nerves can also result from being exposed to toxins like pesticides or heavy metals, which are just as harmful as alcohol is to our bodies.


Numbness, tingling, or burning in the arms and legs

Prickly sensations

Muscle spasms or weakness

Loss of muscle functioning


Vitamin B-12 injections

Oral medications to ease burning pain

Topical ointments

Magnetic therapy

Galvanic stimulation

Diabetic Foot

Diabetes is a lifelong chronic disease that is usually caused by high levels of sugar in the blood, which has lasting effects on your body’s ability to fight off infections. This also harms your organs and stopping them from functioning properly. The feet also become at risk of damage; your nervous system can be compromised and take away all sense of feeling. Your feet can become impaired, unable to perform regular activities as abnormal pressure is put on the skin, bones, and joints.

Take precautions as soon as possible to protect your feet and avoid serious problems that can occur. The sooner that the early signs are recognized, the quicker the ideal treatment can be given to your body and feet. Prevention is key.

Risk Factors

Poorly fitting shoes

Common foot abnormalities

Long-standing or poorly controlled diabetes

Poor circulation

Trauma to the foot
