At Hoosier Foot and Ankle, I prefer to work with a patient before gangrene has had a chance to invade. Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) can lead to very poor circulation in feet. That poor circulation can mean slower wound healing which in turn invites gangrene.

The video is graphic and an extreme case, but the problem was connected to these issues.

PAD, poor circulation, wounds that don’t heal and eventually destructive gangrene.

If you suffer from Peripheral Arterial Disease, among all of the issues that you face when managing the condition, please take care of your feet. Do the wise things of avoiding shoes that rub sores, avoid cutting nails too short and above all keep track of scrapes or cuts. If you notice issues with your feet that are getting beyond control with simple hygiene, consider an appointment for consultation and a care plan at Hoosier Foot and Ankle.

Your feet are important to your everyday life style. I would rather help you manage your conditions than have to perform an amputation that could have been avoided.

Call 1-800-615-1363 for a consultation appointment at one of our five clinics or use the online appointment option that is available 24/7 for your convenience. Let’s work together to help you continue dancing.
