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).
