Wounds That Won't Heal Can Lead To Amputation

Thanks for printing!  Don't forget to come back to Hyperbaric Physicians of Georgia periodically for new articles!

If you or a loved one has a wound that is not healing properly, you should be seen be a specially-trained wound expert as soon as possible, particularly if you are a diabetic or have been told you have Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD).  Non-healing, open wounds provide an entry point for infections in the soft or boney tissue that can significantly worsen your problem and lead to more serious complications and treatments (including amputation).  Time is of the essence to achieve the best outcome.
