Join Dr. Vinod Kumar from Heart Vascular & Leg Center and guest Greg Morris live on Friday, March 8 at 12:30 p.m.

This month, we’ll be addressing Lower Extremity Wounds and their High Risk for Amputations.

We’ll talk about:

  1. What are lower extremity wounds and who is at risk?
  2. Why can leg and foot wounds be more dangerous than a cut on other areas of the body?
  3. What are the risks for diabetic patients with lower extremity wounds if they don’t seek treatment?
  4. What can be done to help a diabetic or smoker that has a wound that is not healing?

…and more! We’ll also be answering questions from viewers.
