Who Needs Podiatry Wound Care?

Foot and ankle wounds can affect anyone, but certain factors may increase your risk, including:

  • Diabetes
  • Poor circulation
  • Neuropathy (nerve damage)
  • Trauma or injury to the foot or ankle
  • Ill-fitting shoes
  • Aging skin

If you have a non-healing wound or notice signs of infection like redness, swelling, or discharge, it’s important to seek professional care. Our wound care services are designed for men and women ages 18-65 who want expert treatment and personalized attention.

Comprehensive Wound Care Services

At PA Foot & Ankle Associates, we take a comprehensive approach to wound care. Our services include:

Wound assessment: We carefully evaluate the size, depth, and severity of your wound to develop an individualized treatment plan.

Cleaning and debridement: We clean your wound and remove any dead or damaged tissue to promote healing and prevent infection.

Dressing application: We apply specialized dressings to protect your wound, manage drainage, and create an optimal healing environment.

Advanced therapies: For complex or slow-healing wounds, we may recommend advanced treatments like negative pressure wound therapy, offloading devices, or regenerative medicine.

Patient education: We teach you how to care for your wound at home and make lifestyle changes to support healing and prevent recurrence.

Our goal is to help you heal as quickly and completely as possible while minimizing pain and complications.
