Excision info (in office skin surgery):

Upper back or arm: ​We require that you bring a sling to your appointment so you can wear it immediately after the procedure. It is important that you follow post care instructions so that you can heal appropriately. 


Lower extremity: ​We require to bring compression stockings to your appointment. If you are diabetic and having an excision on a lower extremity but do not bring compression stockings, your surgery will be cancelled. 

 If you have any questions about the sling or compression stockings, please contact our office.

Tips on Diabetic Wound Healing

If you have Diabetes and are undergoing an excision, you may experience a slower healing process because of the following:

  1. Uncontrolled blood sugar: In order to promote healing after your excision, it is important to keep your blood sugar under control

  2. Neuropathy: Diabetic Neuropathy is damage to the nerves, making it harder to feel worsening pain coming from wounds. In order to prevent complications, care for your wound carefully and report any redness, warm skin, or discharge coming from your wound. 

  3. Reduced Immune Response: With Diabetes, your body produces enzymes and hormones that cause your immune system to be less effective. Keeping the wound clean and dry is an important first step and good habits like eating well and getting enough sleep are necessary to help your immune system do its job.
