Non-healing wounds require specialized care because underlying, complex conditions prevent the wound from going through the expected healing stages. The longer a chronic wound goes untreated, the greater risk of infection and more serious complications, including amputation.
Chronic wounds can result from:
- Heart & vascular disease
- Traumatic injury
Ask your doctor about Wound Care at Upland Hills Health Specialty Clinic. Tracy Parent, R.N., will work closely with Drs. Ryberg and Linebarger in General Surgery and Dr. Graney in Podiatry, to evaluate chronic, non-healing wounds and create a plan of treatment.
