What causes chronic wounds?
Non-healing wounds of the diabetic foot are considered one of the most significant complications of diabetes. More than 8 million people with diabetes are estimated to suffer with chronic or non-healing wounds.
Wounds that don’t heal are usually associated with inadequate circulation, poorly functioning veins, and immobility. Non-healing wounds lead to lower quality of life and may lead to amputations.
Typically, a wound that does not respond to normal medical care within 30 days is considered a problem or chronic wound. When wounds don’t heal on their own, you could need a specialized approach to properly recover and prevent further complications.
Treatment for chronic wounds
That's where our Wound Healing Center can help. With the state-of-the-art treatments available including debridement, dressing selection, special shoes, and patient education, people with non-healing wounds now have a place to turn.
We use an interdisciplinary model of care that includes infectious-disease management, physical therapy, occupational therapy, laboratory evaluation, nutritional management, pain management, diabetic education, radiology testing, and debridement to address your overall health.
