Nearly 6 million patients in America are affected by chronic wounds, costing the US health care system an estimated $20 billion annually. Every year more than 1 million people with diabetes will develop foot ulcers; 20-30% of those cases will eventually require amputation. Chief causes of a breakdown in the wound-healing process include infection, tissue ischemia/hypoxia, inadequate local wound responsiveness and unrelieved pressure.
Fortunately, our Advanced Wound Center offers treatment options that can help heal chronic wounds, giving referring physicians, nurses and other health care professionals a proven resource in affecting positive outcomes for their patients.
Our mission is to improve the quality of life for all of our patients. That means aggressively managing wounds to ensure they heal quickly and completely. We work in conjunction with referring physicians as partners to determine a complete set of wound care protocols to address each patient’s needs. And we provide all patients with dedicated and specialized attention, enabling them to return to a full life free from the pain of chronic wounds.
Our Advanced Wound Center is an outpatient program that focuses on chronic and non-healing wounds. Using advanced treatment modalities and a case management model, we help patients improve the quality of their lives. In partnership with physicians, nurses and multiple medical disciplines, we provide invaluable care for patients.
