Ischemic foot is inadequate arterial blood flow from the heart to the foot that can occur from arterial blockages, arterial spasms, and injury to the artery. Since blood flow is restricted to the foot, symptoms include cold feet, purplish or discolored toes, muscle cramping, and pain. Ulcers and gangrene can result from the lack of blood to the area. Treatment for ischemic foot involves exercises that increase blood flow to the feet, such as walking; orthotics and protective shoes can protect the affected skin from damage caused by rubbing or irritation. Medications may be prescribed to improve blood flow (always consult with a doctor before taking any medication).

His methods of treatment for non-healing diabetic ulcers is notable. I approached Dr. Hochstein in August of 2014, with a persistent non-healing Diabetic Ulcer. The Ulcer was deep and rather […]
Recently I sent a dear friend to Dr. Hochstein for a chronic non-healing wound. The wound had been open for over a year and other health care providers in the area had been unsuccessful in getting it to heal. Not only did Dr. Hochstein heal her wound, but within a matter of weeks. She raved […]

Absolutely the best!! I was recommended to Dr. Hochstein after a unsuccessful bunion surgery where I had been through 5 months of pain, excessive swelling, and eventually a non-Union. I was told I had a healing problem and I’m 31 with no medical conditions. I didn’t know where to turn to or what to do […]
