At any given time, almost seven million Americans suffer from chronic, non-healing wounds. Some are associated with complications from diabetes and other related vascular disorders. Other types include pressure sores and traumatic wounds. The Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine at Heywood Hospital uses the most up-to-date approaches to wound healing and remains current in new scientific advances in wound care. The Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine is a hospital-based outpatient service.
When Should I Consider Using the Wound Care Center?
If you have a sore or wound that has not started to get significantly better in a month, or has not healed entirely in two months, you should ask your doctor about The Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine.
