Comprehensive Wound Care Treatment

6.7 million Americans are living with a chronic, non-healing wound, and 25% of people living with diabetes will experience a foot ulcer. Annually, chronic wounds have a $50 billion impact on the healthcare system. Due to the lack of awareness of advanced wound care, the vast majority of these people do not receive the treatment they need and deserve.

Amputees, seniors, readmitted patients, diabetics, cardiac patients, cancer survivors, surgical patients, and even veterans are at risk of complications from wounds. As such, become aware, intervene early, and seek advanced wound care at the Louisiana Cardiovascular & Thoracic Institute today.
