Wound care for vascular disease and diabetic foot problems
If you have a wound related to vascular disease or diabetic foot ulcers, Charcot foot, or deep vein thrombosis you need the support of a multidisciplinary team that can help you get better and reduce the chance of serious complications – including amputation. The experts at Novant Health work together to ensure that you are getting the highest-quality care for your specific needs, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy or reconstructive surgery . It is this team approach at our limb preservation center in Winston-Salem, North Carolina that leads to the reduction of amputations.
Some patients require acute inpatient as well as outpatient follow-up care. In both our inpatient units and outpatient clinics, our wound care specialists treat wounds related to vascular diseases, or diseases of the arteries and veins, as well as diabetic foot problems. Our team approach enables us to provide full support even if you have one or more complex diseases or conditions.
