One advantage to selecting UT Southwestern for wound care is our team. Experts in Physical Medicine, Podiatry, Vascular Surgery, and Plastic Surgery direct care for our patients.

We’re often able to provide answers for patients that have been told elsewhere amputation is their only choice. One of our areas of expertise is saving a toe, foot, leg, fingers, or other extremities – whether the wound is resulting from diabetes, infections, vascular disease, infections,and/or other health issues.

This ranges from recommending specialized equipment such as beds to helping understand how wounds should be healing. Because studies show wounds heal slower for people with diets lacking in essential nutrients, we provide information about nutrition to patients as part of treatment plans.
