In brief: See vein specialist

Leg ulcers are often caused by chronic venous insufficiency which is a problem that causes to much pressure to be in the veins near the skin.
A venous specialist can diagnose and treat this condition. Our cure rate with venous ulcers is 97%.

In brief: Aggressive treatment

Venous ulcers can be healed but they require many combined modalities of treatment.
The most important factor is to treat the cause of the problem which is the high venous pressure due to mafunctioning valves. This can be done with catheter ablation. Next the wound must be cleaned and kept clean, compression bandages or stockings are necessary and, most importantly, see a vein specialist.
