Home » Medical Services » Wound Care

A non-healing wound is a wound that does not improve after 4 weeks or heal after 8 weeks. It can be a:

  • Diabetic foot ulcer
  • surgical wound
  • pressure ulcer
  • venous ulcer

For an assessment of your wound, call our wound care centers, where you can be seen by a board-certified physician. A referral from your doctor is not needed for most insurances. 

You may be referred to Partners In Rehab or Home Care for follow up treatment of your wound.

How We Treat Wounds

Our solutions can dramatically accelerate the healing process. In fact, many of our patients heal within half the time. For you, that could mean new relief from the slow, frustrating struggle to heal your wound.

Number of Weeks to Heal a Wound

Treatment may include:

  • Individualized dressing management
  • Debridement – removal of debris and/or dead tissue from wound
  • Bioengineered skin and tissue replacement
  • Compression wrapping (for ulcers associated with swollen legs)
  • Electrical stimulation (E-Stim) – a treatment in which a very low electrical voltage is applied to the wound in order to stimulate cellular healing elements
  • Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy – a treatment in which the patient breathes 100% oxygen while inside a treatment (Hyperbaric) chamber at a pressure that is roughly twice atmospheric pressure. This enriched oxygen environment promotes the development of new blood vessels (angiogenesis) and promotes the growth of new tissue and skin within certain wounds.
  • Transcutaneous oxygen testing to determine blood/oxygen supply to wound area
