charcot and fissure on bottom of foot

Our 30 year old daughter has fairly advanced charcot marie tooth. She has developed a dangerous (because of exposure to infection) fissure on the bottom of her foot. (She wears braces and the fissure is caused by her regular walking pattern); She has stayed off of her feet for the past two weeks to give it a chance to heal. During the first week she wore a partial cast to facilitate the process. We are wondering if any medical centres specialize in treating this type of opening on the foot - so that it will be fully healed and end risk of infection - and if any one has any suggestions. Many thanks, Harold. PS: (The fissure appears to be healing on the surface - but we are not sure how deep the healing is and the skin around it looks quite vulnerable);
