Treatment is Available Now
If you have a wound that won’t heal, now is the time to seek treatment.
At St. Vincent’s Center for Wound Healing, you will receive the right diagnosis and the best treatment available for your non-healing wounds.
Frequently defined as sores, these wounds are resistant to normal healing processes. When a wound shows no sign of improving within 30 days, even after standard medical treatment has been administered, it is defined as a chronic wound. Contributing factors include inadequate circulation, poorly functioning veins, and immobility.
If you recognize these symptoms or warning signs, do not wait. Call us. Untreated wounds may result in serious medical consequences.
Healing help at St. Vincent’s Center for Wound Healing is available now at our Trumbull and Stratford locations.
