Your Best Choice for Specialized Care
For the majority of people, wound healing is an ordinary, everyday process. But for an estimated five million Americans, it becomes a serious medical issue requiring specialized care and extensive treatment. Some wounds, like diabetic wounds, arterial or venous leg wounds, pressure sores and burns can take months or even longer to heal, or don't heal at all.
Wounds that haven't improved in four weeks, or haven't completed healing in eight weeks are considered chronic, non-healing wounds. It can be extremely difficult or even impossible to effectively treat chronic wounds in a regular physician's office.
The Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital Wound Care Program has achieved an average successful healing time of seven to 12 weeks, including healing wounds that have not responded to past treatment.
