Wound Care

In general, if your wound has not started to heal after 2 weeks, or has not healed completely within 6 weeks, then you should consider visiting a wound care specialist.

Why would I need to see a Wound Care Specialist?

Conditions that may make it harder for your wound to heal:

  • Diabetes

  • Congestive

  • Heart Failure

  • Vascular Disease

  • Incontinence

  • Severe Obesity

  • Renal Failure

  • Nerve Damage

Certain lifestyle issues may also prevent wound healing. For instance, a poor diet, excessive alcohol intake, smoking, and being inactive may also impede your recovery from a wound.
