Underlying conditions such as diabetes, circulation problems or previous cancer treatment involving radiation can cause or complicate these wounds. There are many other types of chronic wounds that can result from pressure ulcers, trauma or infection. They include:
Osteoradionecrosis of the jaw
Soft tissue radio necrosis
Diabetic foot ulcers
Failing skin grafts or flaps
Venous stasis ulcers
Other non-healing woundshycx
No matter what the cause, chronic wounds can have serious health consequences and adversely affect your quality of life. Our multidisciplinary team is dedicated to providing you with the most advanced healing options. In addition to diagnostic testing and prevention education, available therapies include specialty dressings, compression therapy, biologic skin substitutes and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
