WOUND CARE CENTRE

If you suffer from a wound that just won’t heal, YOU NEED  the advanced therapies and comprehensive approach of the Save Legs Diabetic Foot Clinic & Wound Care Center at HYDERABAD, INDIA to get help for chronic or nonhealing wounds.

You scratch your foot while walking barefoot, or hurt it while clipping your nails or you get a “Shoe Bite” because of an ill fitting shoe. For most people, the cut is nothing an antiseptic ointment won’t fix or worst comes to worst a course of oral antibiotics won’t help. However, if you have diabetes or circulatory problems, this simple injury could become a major wound & this is where the services of the Save Legs Diabetic Foot Clinic & Wound Care Center become important.

Typical risk factors for chronic or nonhealing wounds include

  • Diabetes
  • Reduced sensation (Neuropathy)
  • Vascular disease – Venous or Arterial
  • Immobility (which may lead to pressure ulcers or bed sores)
  • Rarer causes like Sickle cell anemia, Immunological disorders like SLE, Rheumatoid Arthritis etc.

People with diabetes are at particular risk for developing these wounds, which can cause severe health risks and may result in life-threatening infections and possible amputation.

“If your wound hasn’t shown significant improvement in 1-2 weeks, it’s essential that you seek treatment at a facility that specializes in wound care”

“In case of diabetics with foot wounds, if the wound does not show signs of healing in 24 hours of detection, it is imperative to seek specialized help at the earliest” 

Diabetic Foot Wounds may also present with fever with chills(shivering), high blood sugars without fever, simply a feeling of cold apart from usual signs of infection which may or may not be present.

Here’s a staggering statistic: More than 80000 Indians with diabetes undergo amputation because of foot ulcers or chronic wounds annually. But you don’t have to be one of them. Doctors estimate that nearly 70 percent of amputations are preventable with awareness, prevention, and timely intervention.
