Surgical Options

A majority of noninfected foot ulcers are treated without surgery; however, when this
fails, surgical management may be appropriate. Examples of surgical care to remove
pressure on the affected area include shaving or excision of bone(s) and the correction of
various deformities, such as hammertoes, bunions, or bony “bumps.”

Ling P. Chen Info:Plantar warts tend to be hard and flat, with a rough surface and well-
defined boundaries; warts are generally raised and fleshier when they appear on the top of
the foot or on the toes. Plantar warts are often gray or brown (but the color may vary),
with a center that appears as one or more pinpoints of black. It is important to note that
warts can be very resistant to treatment and have a tendency to reoccur.

About Dr. Ling P. Chen, MD


Self treatment is generally not advisable. Over-the-counter preparations contain acids or
chemicals that destroy skin cells, and it takes an expert to destroy abnormal skin cells
(warts) without also destroying surrounding healthy tissue. Self treatment with such
medications especially should be avoided by people with diabetes and those with
cardiovascular or circulatory disorders. Never use them in the presence of an active
infection.

About Ling P. Chen:

Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disease that affects the lives of nearly 24 million people in
the United States, nearly 6 million of whom are unaware that they even have the disease.
In 2007 alone, 1.6 million new cases of diabetes were diagnosed in people aged 20 years
or older. The disease is marked by the inability to manufacture or properly use insulin
and impairs the body’s ability to convert sugars, starches and other foods into energy.
The long-term effects of elevated blood sugar (hyperglycemia) are damage to the eyes,
heart, feet, kidneys, nerves and blood vessels.
About Dr. Ling P. Chen, MD
Obstetrics and gynaecology (or obstetrics and gynecology; often abbreviated to
OB/GYN, OBG, O&G or Obs & Gynae) are the two surgical–medical specialties dealing
with the female reproductive organs in their pregnant and non-pregnant state,
respectively, and as such are often combined to form a single medical specialty and
postgraduate training programme. This combined training prepares the practising
OB/GYN to be adept at the surgical management of the entire scope of clinical pathology
involving female reproductive organs, and to provide care for both pregnant and non-
pregnant patients.
