Wound Healing Center
We offer many specialized therapies to help you heal faster.
Slow-healing wounds are a serious health issue. From limiting your mobility to an increased risk of infection, an open sore can quickly become more than an inconvenience.
If you have a wound that has not healed in 30 days, the Wound Healing Center can help. Our staff has special training in wound science, and we offer many treatment options. From hyperbaric oxygen therapy to specialized wraps and dressings, we match the right therapy to your specific situation. Slow-healing wounds shouldn't be ignored - let us put you on the fast track to recovery.
The Wound Healing Center is conveniently located at Marshall Professional Center, with front door drop-off and parking directly in front of the building.
