About Wound Care
A chronic or non-healing wound is generally defined as a sore, ulcer or other skin breakdown that that has not responded or significantly improved with conventional treatment over a 30-day period. These wounds are often associated with inadequate circulation, poorly functioning veins and immobility, and can lead to serious complications, including amputation.
Chronic wounds are a growing health problem. More than 8 million Americans suffer from chronic wounds – and approximately 1.1 to 1.8 million new cases are diagnosed each year. Diabetes, a condition that affects nearly 26 million people, is one the most common causes of non-healing wounds. In fact, an estimated 15% of all diabetics will develop chronic wounds. However, studies show that specialized wound care treatment can help reduce such complications, optimize healing, reduce hospital stays and avoid amputation.
Treating chronic wounds is a complex and often challenging process. At our Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center, we draw on the expertise and experience of our clinical staff to create a plan of care that will best meet your individual needs. We begin with a comprehensive evaluation to determine the most effective course of treatment for you.
