Plastic Surgical Techniques of the Foot
As the feet are a common area for wounds and other types of injuries, especially in patients with diabetes, certain plastic surgery techniques may be used to ensure proper closure of the wound and also restore the normal appearance and function of the foot. This keeps the foot looking and feeling healthy so that patients can continue to maintain an active lifestyle. It can also help to prevent complications such as infection or further injury.
The type of treatment needed for wounds and other diabetic conditions affecting the foot depends on each patient's individual case, but may include skin grafts, skin flaps and other therapies that promote natural healing within the skin for a reduced risk of complications. Our advanced treatments help provide a clean, moist environment that is conducive to efficient wound healing and a quick and painless recovery.
