Non-healing leg wounds and ulcers fall into several different categories, with different symptoms:
A vascular ultrasound is a non-invasive process and can be done, in most cases, in under an hour. Testing is pain-free and does not involve the use of any drugs or anesthesia. Using simple sound waves, a Registered Vascular Ultrasonographer can easily scan for circulatory deficiencies and provide your physician with the critical information they need to develop a plan for how to best approach healing your wounds.
While podiatrists are the traditional starting point for non-healing leg wounds, only a trained Vascular Surgeon can evaluate and treat the underlying cause of most non-healing wounds: poor circulation. Unfortunately, many times skin supplements, hyperbaric chambers, and wound debridement are the standard treatments for treating non-healing wounds, without consideration of the underlying cause of poor circulation.
If you or anyone you know suffers from long-term non-healing ankle, foot or leg wounds, call 408-376-3626 to schedule an appointment today at South Bay Vascular. Our physicians are the leading wound care experts in the South Bay Area and can evaluate the possibility of undergoing a revascularization procedure to address the root cause of this poor circulation.
