At any given time, almost six million Americans suffer from
chronic, non-healing wounds. Many are associated with
complications from diabetes and vascular disorders. Non-healing
wounds also occur in pressure sores and traumatic wounds.

your care. Medical staff physicians practicing provide care and
education for patients with chronic and non-healing wounds.

doctor about Wound Care Services.
