Diabetic Wound Care & Chronic Wound Care Treatment
San Diego, CA
San Diego Vascular Center
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 30.3 million people in America have diabetes. This number is up from previous years as they report. While many people remain undiagnosed (about 7.2 million people), those who have been diagnosed may be subject to chronic wounds.
What are Chronic Wounds?
Though not a complete list, those suffering from diabetic foot ulcers, venous leg ulcers, and pressure ulcers may also end up seeking chronic wound care. Understanding the challenges and taking the steps necessary to treating chronic wounds is paramount to improving a patient’s quality of life.
Chronic wounds are wounds that do not go through the typical phases of wound healing in an ordered and timely fashion. Many times chronic wounds will remain in the first or second phases of wound healing. This leaves the wound exposed to bacteria and other factors that may cause infection.
Understanding and tending to the difficulties in treating chronic wounds will prompt a superior clinical result, bringing about enhanced patient satisfaction and decreased medical costs. At San Diego Vascular Center, we are committed to the appropriate treatment of chronic wound care and diabetic wound care. Contact us today for more information on treatment options.
