When it comes to Diabetic Foot treatment, the primary goal of our NYC foot doctors is to help our patients obtain healing as quickly as possible and lower any chances of infection. We offer a variety of treatment options depending on the severity of your case, including the use of topicals, skin grafting, or even surgical intervention and hospitalization if necessary.


Description

This refers to a wound to the foot that is more common in diabetics, which then becomes infected. Diabetics tend to get more wounds because the feeling in their feet is not very good and they often do not realize they are injured. Diabetics are also slow to heal, so this makes diabetic foot a major health concern

Treatment Options

There are a variety of treatments depending on the severity of the wound. Some may be treated with topicals and skin grafting, but infected and severe wounds often need surgical intervention and hospitalization
