Standard care of leg wounds and ulcers, without identifying the underlying problem, can delay healing and increase costs. When it comes to successful outcomes, veins and wounds often go leg and leg.
More than 70% of all lower extremity ulcers are venous in origin. After identification and treatment of the underlying venous disease, these ulcers typically heal in several weeks.
For best outcomes, patients with lower extremity wound problems should always undergo evaluation for venous disease in conjunction with local wound care.
Evaluations for wound care and vein treatment are performed in our Salem office.
