Laser therapy is a non-invasive technology that is available to clinicians involved in the management of diabetic ulcers. In the case described, the utilization of laser therapy to successfully treat a non-healing ulcer of the lower extremity is profiled. Prior to initiating laser therapy, this particular lesion had continued to increase in dimension. Laser therapy applied over a course of three weeks arrested wound progression, stimulated granulation tissue formation in the wound bed and re-epithelisation of the ulcer. Laser therapy can be a useful adjunct to best practice treatment for wounds that fail to progress.
