Ask about Our Specialty Care
Anyone who has had a chronic wound (sore) of the lower leg and needs to make multiple trips a month to a wound care clinic will tell you of the cold, demanding nature of these appointments. In many cases, home wound care would be a viable option. Many patients will have home healthcare agencies come into their house up to seven days a week for care and dressing changes.
Many of these patients benefit from in-home visits that are in conjunction with wound care clinic visits.
There are a variety of reasons why wound care clinics and frequent nursing visits could potentially delay wound care healing. With in-home nursing care, orders are given to the home health agency after one visits their wound care doctor. Sometimes, depending on the frequency of your visits, these care orders may not change as your wound either heals or gets worse. With Wisconsin Visiting Podiatry wound care, we can adjust or change therapies immediately based on what your wound is doing, often saving time and resources to get you healed in a more timely fashion.
Wisconsin Visiting Podiatry has implemented a patient-friendly model in which Dr. Kennison visits patients in the comforts of their own homes. He will assess and address a patient’s wounds and the necessary treatments. Whether through debridements alone or combined with medication management, Dr. Kennison is cognizant of coordinating a patient’s specific care needs with their physician and/or home healthcare teams. The goal is to best meet each patient’s individual needs and to get them back up on their feet as soon as possible!
Dr. Kennison has had extensive training in all types of wounds. They may be diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, ulcers because of poor circulation or those ulcers caused by extensive lower leg swelling. Wisconsin Visiting Podiatry uses only the latest, proven techniques and medications to heal these wounds in the shortest amount of time possible, with the least amount of impact on the patient.
Please be aware, that not every lower leg wound can be improved in the home. Some patients will still need the more advanced modalities only available from a wound care clinic. If a patient’s wound appears to fall into this category, every effort will be made to provide effective alternatives.
