Treatment of an Ulcer with an Unna Boot
Dr. Matthew Neuhaus of Neuhaus Foot and Ankle explains the reasoning behind needing an unna boot on your foot or ankle. An ulcer can heal many ways, but one way the podiatrists at Neuhaus Foot and Ankle have found to be successful, especially with a large ulcer, is with an unna boot. The unna boot stays moist and flexible unlike a regular cast, and this helps with the swelling and the drainage of the ulcer.
Neuhaus Foot and Ankle is located just outside Nashville, TN with locations in Smyrna, Brentwood Lebanon, and Hermitage. To schedule an appointment, please call (615) 220-8788 or our toll-free number 888-713-0906. You can also request an appointment online.
