Nearly 7 million Americans have non-healing wounds because of diabetes, pressure ulcers, circulatory problems or other injuries. Unlike normal wounds that your body can heal, chronic or traumatic open wounds show no significant signs of healing over a period of several weeks.
If you have a wound that isn't healing, help is available. CHI Saint Joseph Health – Wound Care Center in Lexington offers care with a comprehensive, specialized program to help patients who suffer with non-healing wounds.
At our wound care centers, you will be carefully evaluated and treated by a team of experts that includes trained wound care nurses and physicians specializing in diabetic or neuropathic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers (bedsores), venous stasis ulcers and vascular ulcers.
Although common to be referred to the Wound Care Center by your primary care provider, it is not necessary. Self referrals are accepted and then we will report your wound care progress to your primary care provider.
For more information, or to schedule an appointment, please call 859.313.4855.
