If you have a wound that isn’t healing as quickly or as fully as it should, a Mercy Health wound care specialist can help. Our team uses advanced technologies and treatments, including hyperbaric medicine, to help heal all types of chronic wounds as fast as possible.
We treat wounds caused from poor blood circulation, diabetes, burns, surgeries and other conditions. Wounds can develop on any part of the body but are most common on the legs and feet.
