FOOT CARE NURSE
Dean Wright, LPN, Certified Foot Care Nurse
Dean is a certified Foot Care Nurse that has training in Diabetic and Medical foot care to treat high risk patients with Neuropathy. Dean prevents little problems from becoming big problems by treating corns, calluses and toenails. He also has the tools and training to thin out fungally infected toenails that have thickened; putting the patient at risk for future foot complications.
Preventative foot care nursing will remove painful pressure points on the bottom of the foot which will allow for easier mobility and for Neuropathy patients; will reduce the chance of tissue breakdown that may result in ulceration. Each treatment session is also an education session on optimal foot health.
As a footcare nurse, I assess your feet for signs and symptoms of potential health risk factors, such as circulation (tissue discoloration), edema (swelling), and any decreased protective sensation.
