Dear patients and visitors,
Please know that our office is following all recommended guidance
from public health authorities, including best practices for hygiene,
infection control and medical professional team health. Our highest
priority is to keep all our patients and staff as safe as possible. Due to
Governor Tony Evers’ SAFER AT HOME orders, we will have limited
hours and staffing until the orders end on May 26 th or later if these
orders should be extended. We will only be seeing a limited number of
patients and only those where the appointment is necessary for their
immediate health and safety. We ask that anyone who enters our office
practices social distancing of 6 feet and covers their mouth and nose
when you cough or sneeze. Please STAY HOME IF YOU ARE SICK.
If you call our office and no one answers, please leave us a message.
Someone will be checking messages several times a day and will get
back to you. Thank you for your patience and understanding during
these trying times. We all need to work together to keep everyone in
our community safe and to minimize the risk to one another.

Gangrene occurs when there is a lack of blood supply to tissue, depriving it of oxygen, and thereby causing death and decay of the tissue. The two types of gangrene are wet (caused by bacterial infection) and dry (no infection). Most common causes of gangrene are diabetes, arteriosclerosis, tobacco abuse, burns, and frostbite.
Treatment for gangrene includes surgical removal of the dead tissue and use of antibiotics when infection is present.
