Wound Care Conditions & Treatments

Our wound care experts provide specialized care for complex wounds. We help patients suffering from chronic, non-healing wounds, such as burns, pressure sores, and severe infections. We also help patients whose wounds haven’t healed due to complications from diabetes, radiation therapy, trauma or other medical conditions.

Our multi-disciplinary team of specialists determines the underlying causes of resistance to healing and tailor an individualized treatment plan for each unique wound. We work with patients to manage pain, reduce the risk of serious complications, accelerate healing, and improve their quality of life.
