Schedule Wound Care with Our Professional Podiatrists
Ulcers on the foot or ankle may seem like minor injuries during the early stages, but it is important to seek treatment for ulcers to prevent them from worsening or becoming infected. If left untreated, ulcers can become infected, resulting in tissue damage or removal, amputation, or severe infections that affect other parts of the body.
If you suffer from open sores or non-healing wounds on your foot or leg, you need regular medical care from a physician who specializes in foot and ankle treatment. There are several potential causes of wounds or ulcers on the lower extremities. Our team of specialists will determine the reason this lesion developed and will design a specific treatment plan based on its cause. Oftentimes, the diagnosis may require further studies, including a non-invasive vascular workup, biopsy, wound culture, and blood work, all of which can be performed in our St. Paul office. When necessary, we also work with other specialists to ensure that you receive the best possible treatment. If you’re concerned about a wound or sore on your foot, ankle, or leg, please don’t hesitate to make an appointment with one of our podiatrists at Highland Foot & Ankle in St. Paul!
