What Does Treatment Involve?
To treat your wound, we may choose to use an amniotic tissue graft product to help you heal. This graft may be in the form of a thin sheet of tissue. It may also be an injectable liquid that contains special cells and substances that aid in tissue repair and help your body rebuild itself.
Another approach to foot care is the use of skin grafts, which contain living human skin cells to accelerate and promote healing. The process of involves taking the healthy human cells from another area of the body and placing it over the ulcer. Our podiatrists will determine which area of the skin will be removed and will carefully stitch to hold the skin grats in place.
