Treating Diabetic Wounds
If you have diabetes, you may lack feeling in your legs and feet, which means you may not notice small sores or cuts right away. Blood might not circulate well in your lower limbs, making it harder for your body to heal those wounds. That’s why 15 percent of diabetic wounds lead to removal of a foot or part of a leg. When you get treatment at Cone Health, you could prevent an amputation.
Your wound care team will develop an individualized treatment plan that may include:
- Collagen dressings that encourage the growth of new, healthy cells
- Compression wraps that improve blood flow back to the heart and reduce swelling
- Debridement, or removal of dead and damaged tissue
- Hyperbaric oxygen therapy that enhances circulation and healing
- Natural and synthetic skin substitutes
- Skin grafts and flaps
