Wound Care Conditions

If you’re suffering from a chronic or non-healing wound, you are not alone. Every year, chronic wounds affect millions of people in the United States.

Chronic non-healing wounds may have many causes, including a lack of proper blood supply; trauma; tears, cuts or punctures and other stresses with potential for infection and widespread damage to surrounding tissues. Sometimes, wounds or sores may not get better during the course of conventional treatment. These wounds can lead to severe health risks and life-altering situations such as amputation and other debilitating health problems.

Outperforming National Wound Center Benchmarks

Our overall healing rate consistently outperforms national wound center benchmarks, with approximately 90% of our patients' wounds healed within two months.

Our team of doctors, nurses and other professionals are specially trained to treat wounds that have resisted healing after months and even years of traditional treatment. The objective is to treat the wound by addressing the underlying issues, including:
  • Vascular Disease 

    Inadequate blood flow by arteries which deliver oxygen-rich blood to the body
  • Venous Disease

    Caused by defective valves that result in a back-up of blood in the veins of the legs
  • Diabetes

    Which may cause vascular and nerve sensation disorders, especially of the feet
  • Structural Disorders of the Feet

     Resulting in excessive pressure on the bony areas of the feet
  • Lack of Mobility and Bed Sores

    Caused by pressure and shearing or tearing forces
  • Post-Operative/Surgical Wounds

  • Infections and Tissue Necrosis

  • Burns

    Chemical, radiation and fire

Team Approach Promotes Healing

We utilize a team approach when developing individualized patient care plans to ensure that you receive the care and attention you need every step of the way.

  • The Wound Care Team evaluates wound healing progress weekly and communicates the results to you and your primary care physician.
  • Your primary care physician monitors your overall health and may prescribe related therapies.
  • You keep your appointments, follow directions carefully and monitor your progress between visits.
