Our wound expert has the clinical and surgical training to treat foot and ankle wounds and their causes, providing specialized treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds. If you have a chronic wound, we’ll do a thorough evaluation to determine why you’re not healing, closely examining your feet, ankles, and legs for any signs of circulation, sensation, or swelling issues.
We specifically design custom shoes and braces to protect the patient’s wound area and conform to their foot type.
Patients with compromised immune systems, uncontrolled diabetes and certain dietary deficiencies often have more difficulty caring for their foot and ankle wounds. Unfortunately, what starts as a minor wound can quickly escalate into a chronic, non-healing wound or infection if not properly cared for by the patient and monitored by their physician. The following are critical for maintaining proper foot and ankle wound care and promoting faster healing:

Through trial and error, laboratory and clinical studies, we’ve developed multiple tools to treat wound biofilm. Biofilm is a major barrier to wound healing. Our treatments suppress biofilm without damaging host defenses and/or host healing mechanisms. Since biofilm is so resilient and robust, it has become apparent that multiple concurrent strategies are most effective.
Wounds and other biofilm based human infections are unique in that the surface of biofilm is accessible, which allows physical management. Tissue surfaces that touch each other can sequester biofilm and give it an advantage.
When bacteria attach to the surface of a wound and evade the host’s defenses, they can quickly develop into a film, which covers the wound surface. This film, called biofilm, is truly a multicellular organism with several well recognized defenses and synergies between different types of bacteria. Biofilm has the ability to reconstitute itself very quickly. Biofilm is very difficult, if not impossible to eradicate. Our wound expert makes every effort to suppress biofilm and allow for better host healing.

I’ve suffered with DVT for many years and have seen many doctors with little or no help. A year ago, my leg was so bad that I was told I might lose it. I went to Dr. Kyprios. After a few visits he had it under control. He saved my leg. My only regret is that I didn’t go to him in the first place. Not only is he highly skilled, he is very personable and caring. I can’t thank him enough. And his people are great too. If you’re in need of wound care, he’s the Doctor to see.
My family doctor referred me to Dr. Graff, a wound care specialist, to treat a serious trauma injury to my leg received in a freak accident. Dr. Graff has been treating me since the accident and I am delighted with his handling of my injury. The healing of the leg wound is progressing at a rapid rate due to his medical expertise. He is a pleasant, patient, greatly skilled and articulate practitioner who is punctual, organized and has a highly capable support staff. I am glad to have met him and can unequivocally recommend Dr. Graff for wound care.
I received a recommendation from a friend to seek out Dr. Graff’s help for my ankle. Not only was his facility and team of medical personnel professional, but they also truly listened to my concerns with patience. Customer service and placing the patient’s needs as a priority is essential to recovery. I’m grateful this facility values that as well.
