Amputation Prevention Center

The Amputation Prevention Center at Broadlawns is a center of excellence in Iowa. We are dedicated to treating patients with conditions that place the limb at risk for amputation. Our physicians specialize in treating lower extremity complications of diabetes.

Broadlawns Amputation Prevention Center provides outpatient and inpatient care for people with an at-risk limb.

The clinic utilizes the latest technologies and treatments including hydro scalpel, stem cell therapy, maggot application and negative pressure wound therapy. In addition, our surgeons have vast experience with Charcot foot reconstruction.

In cases where amputations are necessary to prevent the spread of infection, we concentrate on preserving as much function as possible to keep the patient active.

Wound Center

The Wound Center is a state-of-the-art practice that is dedicated to the healing of wounds and to limb salvage.  Our board certified physicians are well-versed in the most current techniques, treatments and products available.  We care for all types of lower extremity wounds from diabetic to venous, and we work closely with the Laser Vein Center on all vascular wounds.  We also offer non-invasive vascular testing to ensure that our patients have the needed blood supply to heal their wounds and to prevent new wounds from forming.

The Wound Center offers many advanced techniques to wound healing including all types of biological dressing.  We utilize many types of offloading techniques to help accelerate the healing process and prevent the return of the wound.  We use the most up-to-date conservative and surgical processes to prevent and treat any type of wound infection including bone infections. Advanced surgical reconstruction is also available for patients with foot deformities resulting from wounds both as a curative and as a preventative measure. Our top priority is ensuring the quality of life for our patients by identifying the quickest path to closure of their wound.
