What We Treat

Diabetic wounds can result in poor or delayed healing due to the lack of circulation causing a reduced supply of oxygen and nutrients to the body tissue and nerves, necessary for healing. Over time, nerves in these areas may become damaged, decreasing the sensation of pain, temperature and touch, making patients vulnerable to injury.

Ulcers are caused by lack of blood flow to the capillary beds of the lower extremities. When pressure is placed on the skin, the skin is damaged and is unable to be repaired due to the lack of blood. The wound has a characteristic deep, punched out look and can be very painful.

  • Arterial ulcers are commonly caused by peripheral artery disease (PAD).
  • Venous ulcers are a result of improper functioning of venous valves, usually in the legs

Non-healing surgical wounds are surgical wounds that have not undergone the normal healing process due to infection, diabetes or weakened immune system.

Crush wounds, at times have a hard time healing due bleeding, bruising, broken bones, open wounds, poor circulation, or breakdown of muscle.

Compromised skin grafts and flaps can occur due to radiation damage, flap necrosis, vascular insufficiency, or ischemia.

Radiation wounds are caused by the effects of radiation treatment for cancer, Injury may involve the skin, underlying soft tissue, and/or deep structures such as bone.

Infected wounds, abscesses are caused by bacteria. It may cause mild infections on the skin, like sores or boils. It can also cause more serious skin infections, infect surgical wounds, the bloodstream, the lungs, or the urinary tract.
