Most people who get a cut or blister recover within a short period of time. But roughly seven million Americans experience chronic, nonhealing wounds whenever they're injured.
People with diabetes or poor circulation and those who are immobile are at greatest risk for wounds that won't heal without specialized intervention.
We're devoted to delivering personalized care to help those with nonhealing wounds recover. We treat patients with diabetic ulcers, failed skin grafts, bed sores, radiation burns, gangrene and other complications.

Why Early Intervention Helps Wound Healing
Some people may not realize right away they have a wound that isn't healing. Others may wait for several weeks before they seek medical intervention, hoping instead the wound will get better on its own.
Your primary care provider, dermatologist or vascular interventionist can help you determine if a wound is not healing effectively and refer you to the Luminis Health Wound Center.
The sooner you seek treatment for a non-healing wound, the easier it may be to recover. Wounds that remain open for longer periods are more likely to develop infections or evolve into difficult-to-heal skin ulcers. Wound-healing treatments that begin promptly are less likely to involve complications.
At the Luminis Health Wound Center, we ask about your health history, assess your injury, and determine how much oxygen and blood flow reach your wound. All this influences your ability to heal. We then create a personalized treatment plan to help you recuperate.
Types of Wound-Care Treatments
We use different techniques to help wounds mend, depending on your circumstances.
Possible treatments include:
- Wound dressings. We tailor bandages to your circumstances, considering your stage of healing.
- Compression therapy. With this you wear special socks or stockings that allow for greater blood flow to your feet and legs. Compression therapy encourages quicker healing in the lower extremities.
- Debridement. Debridement is the removal of dead tissue from within a wound. This allows healthy new tissue to grow in the area.
When needed, our team performs skin grafts and procedures that restore blood flow to an affected body part. These procedures can help cut your chances of experiencing non-healing wounds in the future.
