Treating non-healing wounds

Many people live with chronic or non-healing wounds and. if left untreated, wounds can lead to amputation, hospitalization and even death. There are approximately 6.7 million patients suffering from chronic wounds nationwide and 2,100 in Douglas County alone.

 

CHI Mercy Health’s Center for Wound Healing opened its doors last November, using an interdisciplinary mode of care to provide state-of-the-art treatments. Since then, they have healed 328 wounds, from non-healing surgical wounds to pressure ulcers to traumas and everything in between. This month, the center’s biggest initiative is to raise awareness and provide community education on the chronic wound problem in America.
