The Center for Wound Healing at Oswego Health is announcing its "Come Heal with Us" program for the millions of people battling a non-healing wound that should seek advanced treatment. Chronic wounds affect nearly seven million Americans, diminishing their quality of life and unfortunately their life expectancy. Through the 2023 Come Heal with Us program, The Center for Wound Healing will focus on educating the underserved chronic wound population about the importance of early detection and treatment of chronic wounds.
Come heal with us at the Center for Wound Healing which offers individualized care plans delivered by a multidisciplinary team of specialists, proven to increase healing rates and significantly lower the risk of amputation. We’re dedicated to delivering best-in-class patient outcomes and improved quality of life to people suffering from chronic wounds in our communities through clinically led, evidence-based wound care treatments. Specialized wound care has proven to increase healing rates and significantly lower the risk of amputation. It is critical that patients understand not only disease risk factors that can lead to the development of chronic wounds, but also the urgency and importance of seeking treatment right away.
Managed by Healogics, the nation’s leading provider of advanced wound care, the Center for Wound Healing treats chronic foot and leg wounds that are often caused by underlying conditions such as diabetes and vascular disease. People living with diabetes, heart disease or peripheral artery disease (PAD) are at an even greater risk for health complications that stem from an untreated wound, in fact:
- One in four people living with diabetes will experience a diabetic foot ulcer.
- For those living with heart disease, 82 percent of leg amputations that occur, are due to poor circulation in the affected limb.
- A quarter of people with advanced PAD may require an amputation within one year due to a non-healing wound.
The Center for Wound Healing offers comprehensive wound care and leading-edge treatments, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy, negative pressure wound therapy, bio-engineered skin substitutes, biological and biosynthetic dressings, and growth factor therapies.
