Treatment

    The sharp surgical debridement has three steps, i.e. drainage of tissue and pus, stimulating healing of the chronic wound, and assessment of the extent of infection. The patient must be relieved of any pain using local anaesthesia. The doctor should keep hold of health issues and remove all dead tissues while performing the procedure. Patients with deep tissue infections should be amputated alone or in combination with osteomyelitis.
