Wound Healing Clinic
The Wound Healing Clinic provides a comprehensive treatment regimen for chronic, non-healing wounds. These types of wounds are often part of the disease process for serious conditions such as peripheral vascular disease, diabetes, major infections, cancer, and the effects of radiation therapy.
We provide a team approach to the wound healing process, where the team treats not only the wound, but also provides specialists, education and support necessary to treat the underlying disease process. The Wound Healing Clinic is a partnership with the patient's primary care physician, with updates provided to the physician after each visit.
