A wound that is not healing properly may be complicated by underlying conditions such as diabetes, circulation problems or previous radiation treatment. Sometimes, the simplest of wounds can turn into a significant problem because the body’s normal healing process is affected.
Other types of hard-to-heal wounds result from pressure, trauma or infection. Non-healing wounds can have serious health consequences and may adversely affect your quality of life.
At RestorixHealth all we do is heal wounds. Each of our wound healing centers is staffed by teams of experienced wound care specialists who work with you and your physician to assess your symptoms, determine the underlying cause of your wound and customize the most effective treatment plan to stimulate healing. As the experts in wound healing, RestorixHealth wound healing centers have a proven track record of healing wounds even those whose wound has not responded to other therapies can see significant improvement at our centers.
