Chronic Wounds

According to the Amputee Coalition, nearly 2 million Americans are living with limb loss. 54% of these amputations are due to vascular diseases, such as diabetes and PAD.

Healing wounds is like growing a garden: without proper and vital nutrients, you will not heal very well. As a vascular surgeon, it is my mission to do everything within my power to restore healthy blood flow, preserve limbs, and prevent amputations. 

Who is at risk?

Set up a visit as soon as possible if you:

  • have diabetes
  • have a history of PAD or vascular disease
  • are bed-bound
  • are overweight
  • have high blood pressure or high cholesterol
  • experienced trauma or injuries
  • have a blood-clotting disorder
  • have kidney or heart failure
  • have atherosclerosis or vasculitis
  • are pregnant or have varicose veins

What are chronic wounds?

Chronic wounds are non-healing and at risk for necrosis or amputation. The root cause of many chronic wounds is a blood flow restriction. Vascular surgery can save limbs from amputation while restoring blood flow throughout the body. 

Some examples of chronic wounds are:

  • diabetic ulcers
  • pressure ulcers
  • trauma
  • arterial ulcers
  • venous ulcers
  • post-surgical

I will tailor your treatment plan to your needs and medical history. My medical expertise and emphasis on innovation will help me determine the course of action that will yield the most favorable outcome.
