While time is supposed to heal all wounds, there are instances when natural healing falls short—and medical complications arise. When standard medical care doesn’t solve the problem, specialized wound care at South Shore’s Center for Wound Healing may provide the answer.
Specialized Care for Complex Wounds
Millions of Americans suffer from chronic, non-healing wounds from a variety of causes. Around 15 percent of patients with diabetes will have a chronic, non-healing wound during their lifetimes. Patients also may experience a non-healing wound for reasons such as radiation therapy, trauma or another medical condition.
At the Center for Wound Healing, our team of wound care experts has advanced training and experience in addressing all types of wounds that have resisted healing for months, or even years. We provide leading-edge wound diagnostic and treatment methods, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy, to manage even the most complex wounds.
Because each wound is unique, our specialists perform thorough evaluations to determine the underlying causes of resistance to healing, and tailor an individualized treatment plan. Patients are considered part of the wound care team committed to managing their condition. Working together, we strive to manage pain, reduce the risk of serious complications and help to accelerate healing.
Get Back to the Life You Love
In addition to experiencing ongoing pain or discomfort, people with chronic wounds are often unable to fully participate in activities they once enjoyed. At the Center for Wound Healing, our goal is to help wounds heal quickly to bring our patients greater comfort and an improved quality of life.
