Chronic wounds are a reality for nearly 5 million Americans, with about 500,000 new cases diagnosed annually.
The 14-million individuals with diabetes nationwide are particularly vulnerable to chronic wounds, and are 12 times more likely to undergo limb amputation due to unhealed wounds. While diabetes is a prime culprit, other conditions can also lead to chronic wounds, including arteriosclerosis, traumatic injury, rheumatoid arthritis, congestive heart failure, arterial or venous ulcers and vascular disease. Surgical complications and circulatory conditions can also prevent wounds from healing.
The Wound Healing Center at Methodist Hospital is a vital, compassionate resource for patients in Arcadia and San Gabriel Valley with non-healing wounds.
Patients may be candidates for our program if their wounds have not started healing in one month or have not completely healed in two months.
H.N. and Frances C. Berger Foundation Hyperbaric Oxygen Center
The hyperbaric oxygen chamber provides vital technology to heal diabetic limbs, surgical ulcers, soft tissue and bone injuries as well as diabetic patients suffering with chronic wounds.
