Limb Salvage

What is Limb Salvage?

Many patients with Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD), Diabetes and other illnesses causing nerve damage or poor blood circulation often experience slow or non-healing foot wounds due to the decreased blood supply. These wounds can not only be difficult to treat, but can also persist after weeks of cleaning, antibiotics, and hyperbaric oxygen. If the wounds are left untreated, they can also lead to serious infection, gangrene and amputation. Limb salvage treatment exists to address these recurring circulation issues before amputation is considered, and is often a successful alternative for those who had no other options in the past.
