If I am sending a patient to you who has an ulcer, should I also send him or her to a wound center as well?”

No, foot ulcers can have various etiologies, several of which have to do with the circulatory system in general, such as - arterial insufficiency, diabetes, venous insufficiency and/or a combination of any or all of the above. At Center for Vein Restoration, we can evaluate the patient and his or her specific wound at any of our centers. Those ulcers that are from a source such as diabetes and/or arterial insufficiency can be cared for at our sister practice “The Center for Vascular Medicine,” which specializes in these types of patient care issues. Wounds that are from a venous etiology can be cared for and definitively treated at a CVR office.
