DRH Wound Center
Do you or a loved one have a Chronic Wound? A Chronic Wound is a wound that does not heal in an orderly set of stages and in a predictable amount of time the way most wounds do. Wounds that do not heal within one month are often considered chronic.
“8 million people suffer from chronic wounds, and that number is quickly growing due to an aging population and an increase in diabetes and cardiovascular disease.”
Quality Approach… Superior Results
Healing chronic wounds is a specialty...ours. At the DRH Wound Center skilled physicians use the latest advances in technology to heal wounds.
Every wound has its unique set of circumstances. Our National Healing Wound Center is equipped and staffed to address them all, with most treatments covered by Medicare/Medicaid, HMOs and other private insurance plans. We are experts at caring for people whose open sores have resisted traditional treatment with a success rate of 89% healed in 16 weeks.
Your Role in Healing
Much of the success of your treatment depends on You. We'll count on you to follow directions carefully and watch your progress closely. You'll learn about caring for your wound at home including how to change dressings and how to protect yourself from further injuries. We're always here to answer questions and give you the support you need to heal.
Your Wound…Your Care
