- Chronic diabetic wounds
- Delayed radiation injury to bone or soft tissues
- Decompression sickness – the bends – as a result of diving accidents.
- Compromised skin grafts or flaps
- Carbon monoxide poisoning
- Crush injuries
- Air or gas embolisms
- Bone infections that do not respond to antibiotics
- Other serious conditions such as flesh-eating bacteria
- If you or someone you know has a wound that won’t heal, call us today, and we’ll help you begin the healing process.
A Widespread Problem
Chronic wounds are a reality for nearly 5 million Americans, with about 500,000 new cases diagnosed annually. The 14 million individuals with diabetes nationwide are particularly vulnerable to chronic wounds, and are 12 times more likely to undergo limb amputation due to unhealed wounds. While diabetes is a prime culprit, other conditions can also lead to chronic wounds, including arteriosclerosis, traumatic injury, rheumatoid arthritis, congestive heart failure, arterial or venous ulcers and vascular disease. Surgical complications and circulatory conditions can also prevent wounds from healing.
The Wound Healing Center at Methodist Hospital is a vital, compassionate resource for patients with non-healing wounds.
Patients may be candidates for our program if their wounds have not started healing in one month or have not completely healed in two months.
