Kansas City Foot Specialists pride ourselves on offering advanced treatment options to improve patient care and treatment results. We specialize in foot and wound care for patients affected by diabetes. People with diabetes have an increased risk of developing complications from any wounds on their feet. These complications stem from a decrease in blood flow in the legs and feet, and a decrease in feeling in the hands and feet (neuropathy). The ability to feel a wound present on the feet is important for treatment and care. If you experience neuropathy, you may not know you have a wound on your feet until it is too late.
In our office, foot and wound care in our patients with diabetes is a top priority. We want to ensure that if you are affected by the disease, you will receive the best treatment possible from our doctors. If a wound goes untreated, it could develop into something more severe such as an ulcer and in a worst-case scenario, could require amputation if it is too advanced to treat.
Through continued patient education and regular foot care appointments, we can help you determine if you are at risk for diabetes-related foot ulcers. Our doctors want to make sure patients with diabetes are aware of any wounds and receive the best treatment to prevent such procedures from occurring.
