Preventing Amputations is our Mission
In the USA, approximately 185,000 lower extremity amputations happen every year. Many of those are a result of untreated wounds. Postponing treatment can add to the problems associated with a wound. If you’re dealing with a wound, please seek treatment – fast.
Through expert care, we can help control pain and discomfort, plus prevent amputation – and that’s the reason we’re here. The St. Luke’s Wound Care and Diabetes Center is devoted to wound care, diabetes management, and the prevention of amputations. We’re on a mission to eliminate amputation as a treatment option. And we won’t stop learning, striving and innovating to see that happen.
