Chronic Wounds, Comprehensive Treatment

Lexington Medical Center’s Wound Care Center is a hospital-based clinic which provides specialized treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds, which are defined as sores or wounds that have not significantly gotten better during the course of conventional treatment.

These wounds can cause severe health risks and may result in life-threatening infections, possible amputation and debilitating health problems. However, with the state-of-the-art treatment available at the Wound Care Center, people with slow-healing wounds no longer have to suffer. Our comprehensive approach can heal wounds that have resisted other treatments, and help you avoid loss of limbs, reduce incidence of recurrence, and get your life back.
