Specialized Wound Care for Your Feet in Dallas, Texas

At Lakewood Foot and Ankle Specialists, nestled in the heart of Dallas, Texas, we understand the critical importance of prompt and effective wound care for your feet. Your skin is your body’s first line of defense against a myriad of harmful organisms. When it’s compromised, especially on your feet, it’s vital to take immediate and appropriate action.

Why Timely Foot Wound Care Matters

Your feet bear the brunt of daily life – from walking to running, they are under constant pressure and strain. This makes foot wounds particularly susceptible to complications. For individuals with diabetes, the stakes are even higher. Diabetes can impair circulation and nerve function in the feet, making it crucial to address any skin disruptions without delay. Proper care of foot wounds is not just about healing a current injury; it’s about preserving your overall foot health and functionality.

Our Approach to Podiatric Wound Care

  1. Initial Treatment: We begin with thorough cleaning and debridement, ensuring all foreign matter is removed from the wound.
  2. Advanced Dressing Techniques: Foot wounds can’t be treated like other injuries. They require dressings that not only protect but also redistribute pressure away from the wound. This technique, known as off-loading, may involve specialized footwear, inserts, braces, or boots.
  3. Moisture and Protection: We use special dressings to maintain an optimal environment for healing while protecting the wound from external factors.
  4. Medication Management: Topical treatments enhance healing and mitigate infection risks. If necessary, oral antibiotics are prescribed, with strict adherence to the dosage for maximum efficacy.

Specialized Care for High-Risk Patients

Patients with diabetes, venous insufficiency, or certain arterial diseases have unique wound care needs. Our team at Lakewood Foot and Ankle Specialists is expertly trained to manage these complex cases, ensuring that each treatment plan is tailored to the individual’s overall health and wellness.

The Role of Skin Grafting in Wound Care

For larger, more severe wounds, skin grafting can be a pivotal part of the healing process. Dr. Burge and our team are adept in advanced grafting techniques, including the use of stem cells to promote rapid tissue regeneration and healing. Whether using your own skin, animal tissue, or synthetic options, we are equipped to handle the most challenging wounds.

I love Dr. McClurkin and Dr. Burge! Everyone is so helpful and they really know what they're doing. I will definitely see them again!
I have plantar fasciitis in both feet and suffered with pain on and off for many years. After trying another round of steroids with little improvement (this time the left foot was the culprit of my pain), Dr. Burge suggested I try their Lunula Laser. I must say I was skeptical at something for which I didn't see or feel anything during treatment. After completing the 6th round I realized I was not feeling the stabbing pain in my heel, that I had used my water socks and been at the pool with no pain afterwards, and I had worn my dressy sandals all weekend long and not complained of pain in my left foot at all! Now, that was a huge success for me! My right foot is acting up a bit now. I know what to do this time. No more steroids! It will be Lunula Laser for me!
Thank you for your excellent care. 🙏🏾💜
Dr Burge does a fantastic job especially with wound care and the office staff are super nice!

Dr.Burge and his team are amazing!! I came in with an issue with my toe and he gave me a quick and simple solution. Dr. Burge's bedside manner is incredible, he is patient and takes the time to thoroughly explain his findings. I'd highly recommend him to anyone!
Dr. Burge has an exceptional bedside manner and is an excellent surgeon!
I was referred from a friend who had dr Burge help with his diabetic foot ulcer. My son came in for an ingrown toenail and we could not have been happier with the experience. The staff was fantastic, super friendly and very helpful. Dr burge is a younger guy related well to my teenage son and was very clear in his explanation of what was going on and how the procedure would progress.We would highly recommend him and his office as a great place to go.
UNFORTUNATELY broke my toe multiple times in the same year. FORTUNATELY I found Dr Burge. One of the kindest doctors I've ever met and such an efficient office. I never had to wait more than 5-10 minutes to be seen. I think my toe kept breaking because it liked him that much!
I can’t say enough about dr burge. His bedside manner is something I crave in every interaction I have. My foot could scare a grown man, and he made me feel like I could be a foot model. His attention to detail and gentle touch will never be forgotten.
