The team has educated their colleagues on how to perform the most advanced treatments.

Types of Wounds

Venous Skin Ulcer

A venous skin ulcer is an open sore or ulcer that forms on the lower leg in people who suffer from venous insufficiency, which occurs when the veins in the lower legs are unable to properly return blood to the heart. Venous skin ulcers can also be accompanied by redness, swelling, tenderness, and warmth around the affected area.

Arterial Ulcer

An arterial ulcer, also known as an ischemic wound, is an open sore that is caused by a lack of blood supply due to blockage of an artery. It is most commonly found on the toes, feet and lower legs. This is typically accompanied by pain, discoloration, and change in temperature of the area around the ulcer.

Diabetic Ulcer

A diabetic wound or ulceration develops when there is loss of sensation, and the patient is unable to feel the wound or ulcer developing. They often begin appearing as a blister or callus, but the ulcer is developing underneath. Diabetic wounds left untreated can become difficult to manage, often leading to infection, hospitalization, or amputation.
