Are You In Need Of Advanced Wound Care?

While time may heal most wounds, some wounds are resistant to healing. If you suffer from a chronic wound, you are not alone. There are nearly 6 million patients in America who suffer from wounds which don't heal naturally and may be complicated by poor circulation, diabetes and other medical conditions. Chronic non-healing wounds decrease an individual's/patient's quality of life by causing discomfort, reducing mobility and limiting social interaction. Examples of wounds treated are diabetic foot & leg ulcers, vascular ulcers, necrotizing infections, wounds from injuries, animal, reptile & insect bites, and lower extremity surgical wounds that do not heal.

Wound Healing & Amputation Prevention

There are no magic bullets in healing diabetic foot ulcers or any chronic wound; however, our experience, expertise and treatment plans supported by clinical studies have shown that what might be considered a routine follow-up of patients with a history of ulceration has been critical in maintaining long-term healing success. Even with the use of appropriate footwear, at risk patients may develop calluses in an area of their previous ulcer that may need periodic debridement to avoid re-ulceration. A periodic replacement of therapeutic shoe gear, orthotics and if appropriate additional bracing is important in order to establish and maintain appropriate support and protection of a patient's foot/feet. Make no mistake wound care that is successful is extremely intensive with significant emphasis on the management of the wound(s).Dr. Aung and her staff are poised to provide a level of care unmatched utilizing the latest advance medical technologies available
