Patients

If you or a loved one has a wound that is of concern or is not healing properly, we encourage you to visit the wound center for an evaluation.

Why we do what we do

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.

When to call the Wound Center

If you are experiencing any of the following…

  • Slow-to-heal or non-healing wounds
  • Foot or leg ulcers or wounds
  • Non-healing surgical wounds
  • Non-healing skin grafts or surgical flaps
  • Symptoms occurring on or around a point of radiation (such as pain, rectal or bladder bleeding)
  • Bone infection, also called osteomyelitis
  • Crush injuries

…you could benefit from advanced wound care.

Chronic wounds are a significant health problem affecting millions of people and that number is growing rapidly due in part to a sharp rise in the incidence of obesity and diabetes as well as an aging population.

Up to 25% of individuals with diabetes develop a foot ulcer (1) at some point in their lifetime and more than 60% of all lower extremity amputation patients have diabetes. (2) Not all limbs can be salvaged, but the World Health Organization estimates that up to 80% of amputations are preventable. Additionally, approximately 70% of all pressure ulcers occur in the geriatric population. (3)
