If you or a loved one has a wound or an ulcer that has not started to heal within a month or has not healed entirely in two months, you may have what is referred to as a “chronic” or “non-healing” wound.
There are many factors that can cause a wound to become chronic and
there are many types of wounds. Some wounds are associated with complications from diabetes or poor circulation. Other types result from pressure ulcers and trauma.
Chronic, non-healing wounds can have serious health consequences and may adversely affect your quality of life.
At our center, healing wounds is our specialty. Our team of experienced wound care specialists will work with you and your physician to assess your symptoms, determine the underlying cause of your non-healing wound, and customize the most effective treatment plan to stimulate healing.
Our treatment plans are designed to complement the care your own physician provides, ensuring that your health care team is always working together to provide the treatment that’s right for you.
The conditions we treat include:
- Slow-to-heal or non-healing wounds
- Foot or leg ulcers or wounds
