Foot Ulcer Specialist
Having an open wound, increases the chances of infection. If you have a non-healing wound on your lower extremity, it is essential that you act to get it healed as quickly as possible to prevent infection and further complications.
If you have diabetes, you are especially at risk for complications. The sooner a wound is treated the greater the patient’s chances are of healing.
Dr. Ebonie uses the latest technology to perform a comprehensive neurologic, vascular and orthopedic exam. Once the wounds are healed, patients are regularly followed up to help avoid future problems.
Types of Foot Ulcers
Ulcers are wounds or open sores that will not heal or keep returning. If you have questions about foot ulcers or open wounds, Dr. Ebonie can explain the condition and treatment options.
Venous Stasis Ulcers
Venous ulcers, also referred to as stasis, insufficiency or varicose ulcers, are the result of malfunctioning venous valves causing pressure in the veins to increase. These typically occur along the medial or lateral distal (lower) leg.
Neurotrophic (diabetic) Ulcers
A diabetic foot ulcer is an open sore or wound that occurs in approximately 15 percent of patients with diabetes and is commonly located on the bottom of the foot. They are highly susceptible to infection.
Arterial (ischemic) Ulcers
Ischemic (or arterial) ulcers are a type of vascular ulcer that occurs when there is inadequate blood supply to the skin. They are most frequently caused by progressive atherosclerosis (peripheral vascular disease) or arterial embolization.
Pressure ulcers or bedsores are localized areas of tissue damage that develop because of pressure over a bony area like the heel or ankle. They typically imply that bed-bound or nonambulatory patients develop pressure ulcers.
NEW! Foot Fat Pad Restoration Technology

Fat Pad Atrophy
We spend our entire lives on our feet and that pressure can wear on the cushioning that protects the bones in your feet from the ground that you stand, walk and run on. As we age, our body’s natural fat on the bottom of the foot is lost. This is called fat pad atrophy and is common in both men and women.
This injectable fat graft is a game changer for the treatment of complex surgical wounds and tissue reconstruction. The Leneva technology can be used for diabetic foot ulcer prevention, fat pad reconstruction, pressure ulcers, and even deep tunneling wounds. Walk in and walk out more cushioned!
