Home Foot & Ankle Health Care

wound care

Disclaimer: Detroit house call podiatry providers must follow guidelines set forth by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The CMS also has patient eligibility criteria that includes, but is not limited to, a primary care physician or primary visiting physician’s certification to verify the patient’s eligibility for Medicare home health services.

Homebound patients, including those with mobility limitations or who are disabled, can receive homebound foot care from a visiting foot specialist. A Dearborn house call podiatrist or visiting chiropodist can provide many services from routine foot care to the treatment of a variety of foot and ankle conditions in the convenience and comfort of the patient’s home.

One of the important services that a visiting foot specialist can provide is toenail care for seniors—from trimming toenails, to treating ingrown toenails to curing fungal infections. In addition to nail care for seniors, home care podiatry services may include treating corns & calluses, pressure blisters, athlete’s foot, ulcers, plantar warts, gout, fractures, and more.

Home diabetic foot care is also a vital service for homebound diabetic patients. A house call podiatrist can perform routine check-ups, offer wound prevention, treat existing wounds with a variety of treatments including surgical debridement, prescribe orthopedic shoes and provide durable medical equipment. With these services, the visiting foot specialist plays an important role in helping to keep the diabetic patient’s feet healthy.

Homebound patients need not forego receiving critical foot and ankle care because it is too difficult for them to make an in-office appointment. A visiting foot doctor or visiting chiropodist can provide a high standard of professional care to treat many foot and ankle conditions, while relieving pain, and preventing minor issues from getting worse. Detroit house call podiatry services can also include refilling prescriptions, obtaining wound cultures and biopsies, prescribing gait assistance devices and shoes, and fitting a patient for custom orthotics.
