For most patients, wound healing is a relatively quick and simple process. Our bodies are designed to recover from minor wounds and injuries, but certain wounds require more involved treatment to heal. If left untreated, non-healing or chronic wounds can result in a variety of health risks, including loss of limbs and life-threatening conditions, making effective treatment critical.
