Patients with chronic wounds often have underlying serious health problems such as diabetes, heart disease and circulation disorders. Additionally, we recognize that chronic wounds affect mobility, lifestyle, ability to work, and even the relationships with family members or caregivers around you that you may need to rely on more heavily when you have a wound. Your treatment plan is individualized to maximize healing based on your special circumstances. The wound team coordinates with the patient’s Primary Care Provider, Endocrinologists, Cardiologists, Surgeons, therapists, social services and other specialists to optimize the patient’s health and healing.
