Excela Advanced Wound Center
Wounds that just won’t heal can create additional problems, especially for diabetics. The Excela Advanced Wound Center team includes podiatrists, vascular and general surgeons, a pulmonologist and internists along with support staff who have national certifications. They share their knowledge and expertise to address patient problems and apply state-of-the-art modalities. On an average day we treat 55 patients, on an outpatient basis.
Most basically acute wounds, such as an abrasion, a cut, bite, laceration or surgical wounds, among others, generally health within a predicted time frame and with proper care. In short, they heal. On the other end of the spectrum is the chronic wound, a wound that does not heal within that prescribed time and may take months or years to heal or may never heal with standard therapy, often causing an individual physical and/or emotional stress. But, there is hope at the Excela Advanced Wound Center.
