Wound Care Conditions
The Doylestown Health Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine provides specialized treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds. When wounds persist, a specialized approach is required for proper healing. Typically, a wound that does not respond to normal medical care within 30 days is considered a non-healing or chronic wound.
Persistent non-healing wounds can cause deeper skin erosion, infection and complications that can be damaging to organs and limbs, which might require amputation. Non-healing wounds can be life threatening, particularly for those with diabetes or a heart condition.
Conditions that can cause a non-healing wound include:
- Poor circulation
- Traumatic or repetitive injury
- Surgical incisions
- Inadequate Nutrition
If you suffer from a chronic or non-healing wound, call Doylestown Health's Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine directly, or ask your doctor for a referral. To make an appointment, call 267.885.1775.
