While some wounds only slow you down temporarily and are easily treated, others require very specialized care. Millions of Americans have wounds that take months or even years to heal —affecting their daily quality of life. From the most minor to most chronic wound, we can help you heal.
Depending on the type of treatment your condition requires, we have several locations for wound care.

They combine ability with the latest wound treatment options such as:
- Skin grafts: Your doctors will take healthy skin from another area of your body and transplant it to your wound.
- Wound-healing bandages: These special bandages use advanced technology to provide optimal moist wound healing conditions and help control of moisture level and temperature of your wound.
- Ultrasonic removal of injured tissue (debridement): Your doctor will use sound wave technology to remove your damaged skin and reduce bacteria in your wound.
