Last month, a neighbor of mine fell while she was walking to her mailbox and scraped her leg very badly. I went to check on her and helped her clean the injury. It’s been weeks now, and I can see the wound on her leg is not healing properly.
If you have a wound that just won’t heal, you should consider seeing a vascular surgeon at USA Vascular Centers to determine the cause of the problem. Wounds heal properly when there is strong blood flow to and from the wound site; therefore, a non-healing wound can be a sign of poor circulation or an underlying vascular disease.
A wound that has not healed within four weeks is a good reason to see a specialist at USA Vascular Centers. Our doctors will determine if your veins or arteries are sufficiently transporting blood through your body, and determine the vascular treatment that’s right for you. Several medical conditions can cause poor circulation, including varicose veins, obesity, diabetes, peripheral artery disease (PAD), and more. It’s important to find out exactly why that wound is not healing.
Don’t wait any longer. Call (888) 628-9389 to schedule a consultation with our vein and vascular specialists. Vascular treatments are covered by Medicare, most insurance plans, and Medicaid.
