Wound care involves medical intervention to heal a wound after injury. Specialized treatment is provided for wounds that are non-healing or refuse to heal on their own. To promote healing, learning how to properly dress and care for wounds is vital.

Limb preservation services
Our wound care team uses advanced technology and equipment to detect, treat and prevent vascular disorders, which can contribute to chronic wounds and even limb loss. However, given the associated mortality rate with end-stage peripheral arterial disease (PAD), known as critical limb ischemia (CLI), saving limbs means saving lives.
To provide complete limb preservation care, our specialists work alongside doctors in vascular surgery and interventional cardiology to determine and execute the best treatment plan for you.
Depending on your unique condition, your limb preservation team may suggest:
- Advanced revascularization
- Angioplasty without iodine contrast
