Wound Care helps people with non-healing wounds, especially those with diabetes, an infection, poor circulation or other issues that make it hard to heal.
Wellstar Wound Care professionals specialize in creating a wound care management plan specifically for you. Our doctors are experts in treating a broad spectrum of wounds, from diabetic foot ulcers to non-healing surgical incisions, with the most effective therapies.
