At Advocate South Suburban Hospital, our Wound Care Center provides specialized treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds, which are sores or wounds that have not improved significantly during the course of typical treatment.
These wounds can cause severe health risks and may result in life-threatening infections, possible amputation and debilitating health problems. With the state-of-the-art treatment available at Advocate South Suburban Hospital, however, people with slow-healing wounds no longer have to suffer. Our comprehensive approach can:
- Heal wounds that have resisted other treatments
- Help you avoid loss of limbs
- Reduce incidence of recurrence
Most importantly, we can help you return to a normal lifestyle.
If you have a wound that won't heal, you are not alone. Approximately 7 million Americans experience this condition. The good news is that you no longer have to suffer. The Wound Care Center not only uses among the most advanced therapies available for healing, but it also addresses the underlying cause of the wound-for example, nutrition, lack of exercise, hygiene and ill-fitting shoes-to help eliminate recurrence.
