Foot Ulcer Treatment with Milwaukee Foot Specialists

by Dr. Michael Nute

We have talked before about the different types of ulcers, and why they happen. Now lets take a quick look at what we can do about these painful, annoying issues. Chronic ulcers occur in many of our diabetic and elderly patients, and we all want to get rid of them. We can do this with current techniques medical professionals call “Wound Care”.

As Podiatrists, many of us have extensive training in wound care. We have the experience to treat each foot ulcer individually and take them on the path to recovery. For starters, we want to ensure that your ulcer is not infected. If there is swelling, drainage (puss), redness, or even an odd smell coming from one of your wounds, give us a call immediately; these are signs of infection! If there is a possibility of infection, we will run some tests on a sample from the wound and determine the appropriate antibiotic regiment to lead you towards recovery. An infected wound will not heal.

From here, wound care can be a frustrating topic. However, at Milwaukee Foot Specialists we take pride in seeing our patients with chronic wounds begin to heal. Using office techniques called debridement to remove dead or “necrotic” tissue, we can allow healthy cells to begin to take over your wound. We will even show you how to use good techniques to wrap and care for your wound at home until your next visit.

If you have a wound that won’t seem to go away no matter what you do, come see us soon! We know the details of wound care, and will get your feet on the road to recovery.
