Podiatrist have extensive experience caring for wounds of the feet and ankle. A wound on the foot is different from a wound on other parts of the body. The feet and toes are the body parts farthest away from the heart and healing can be impaired by decreased blood flow. Also, numbness in the feet can affect a person’s ability to sense the severity of the wound or if it is infected.

Wounds on the feet can take significantly longer to heal than a wound elsewhere. Foot wounds and infection are a common cause of hospitalization and unfortunately, amputation. If you develop a wound on your feet seek consultation with a podiatrist immediately.
