After the wound is healed, it is important to keep pressure off. 81% of ulcerations return within the first 2 years! At The Amputation Prevention Center at Capital Foot and Ankle, we specialize in pressure reduction and actively work to prevent ulcers from returning.
Often times after an ulcer is healed, we will prescribe custom shoes and inserts. Other times, surgery is necessary to remove a pressure point. Either way, our experts are here to take care of you. We have an in-house orthotic lab with the region’s best pedorthists to assist with custom footwear. And our surgeon’s are up to date with the most minimally invasive, state-of-the-art surgical procedures to keep you walking ulcer-free!
