Are there any ointments available to hasten wound healing?

Q: Q: My father is scheduled to have a below knee amputation very soon. Kindly suggest me some ointments to aid his wound healing process.

A:There is no medicine/ointment that can hasten the natural process of healing. The orthopaedic surgeon will prescribe antibiotics for a short period to ensure that there is no infection. Concurrently wound dressing may be done with antibacterial ointment such as Betadine-AD.
