We have a special interest in the diagnosis and treatment of wounds of any type - the majority of these being leg ulcers. The underlying cause of many of these wounds or ulcers is usually, but not always, a problem with the circulation - arteries and veins. We see these problems in a specialist clinic - The Wound Clinic.
Patients with ulcers and wounds are seen in a 'multidisciplinary' clinic. This means that both a Consultant Vascular Surgeon and a Consultant Nurse in Complex Wound Management see you at the same time in the one consultation. These combined clinics are recognised as best practice, giving excellent results and outcomes.
We look after a variety of wounds and ulcers, including pressure sores, leg ulcers, non-healing wounds after surgery, diabetic-related wounds, cancer-related wounds and wounds resulting from accidents.
As a surgeon trained in vascular (circulatory) surgery, Mr Jeremy Crane has extensive experience of chronic wounds and the successful treatment of pressure sores, diabetic ulcers, venous leg ulcers and other wounds.
