It is estimated that 7 million people will suffer from chronic wounds this year, which is increasing by 10 percent every year. Despite large scientific and technological advances in the field of wound care, non-healing wounds continue to be a significant problem for many people. Wound patients generally have a chronic disease or have wounds associated with trauma or burns.
The Bay Area Wound Care Clinic treats people who have chronic, complex, non-healing wounds resulting from a number of conditions, including pressure sores, poor circulation to the feet, diabetes, extreme obesity, non-healing surgical wounds, ulcers and injury.
