Wound Care Phoenix AZ
Having a diabetic foot ulcer or wound of any type in the leg or foot can be scary. The podiatrists at Valley Foot Care, Inc. are Board Certified in wound care and recognized Fellows of the American Professional Wound Care Association. Dr. Sekosky has achieved additional recognition of his competency by the American Board of Wound Healing. Both Doctors have had extensive training in limb preservation and training at Hines Veterans Hospital and Loyola University Medical Center where every day clinical, rounds and emergency call involved limb salvage and prevention of limb complications especially in those with Diabetes and Vascular Disease.
According to Diabetic Foot International, 1 in 7 Diabetics will develop a foot ulceration, and 85% of all lower-limb amputations are preceded by a foot ulceration. Our doctors understand these facts and that is why many of the patients who visit our clinics do so for many years. We at Valley Foot Care, Inc. believe in providing every patient with the education he or she needs regarding their ulceration risk factors, including but not limited to neuropathy, poor circulation, foot deformities, boney prominences, ill-fitting shoe gear and pressure points. We recommend daily foot and shoe inspections to support the early detection and prompt treatment of problematic areas. We firmly believe that prevention is the key to success and so we can share a wide variety of preventative foot care tips that can help our patients maintain the health and well-being of their feet for the duration of their lives.
