Watsonville Diabetic Foot & Wound Care Clinic - Pacific Point Podiatry

The Modern Wound Healer

Dr. Tea Nguyen, fellowship-trained in wound surgery, accelerates healing of diabetic foot ulcers with restorative therapies and minimally invasive solutions. 

What is important about diabetes and the feet?

  • Diabetic foot ulcers (DFU) are among the most severe complications of diabetes
  • The lifetime risk of a patient with diabetes developing a DFU is between 15-25%
  • DFU is a precursor to infection, gangrene and amputation
  • Once a DFU is healed, the patient remains at risk for recurrence

Preventive foot care with an expert remains the best way to curb these risks

We offer modern solutions to get you back on your feet. Dr. Tea’s minimally invasive surgery is unlike anywhere else. Here are the benefits when you choose Dr. Tea:

  • No hospital is needed. All surgeries are performed in her office based surgical suite under local anesthesia.
  • No hardware, meaning no pins, screws or metal plates are needed to get you a functional result. This also significantly decreases the risks of infection, hardware rejection or wound dehiscence. 
  • Smaller incisions allowing a faster recovery. Sutures are not needed through a 3mm incision.
  • You are walking immediately after surgery.
  • Long term amputation prevention care with our concierge membership model. We are the first in the nation to offer this model.
