Most wounds are expected to heal within a certain timeframe, following a relatively predictable process. But sometimes wounds don’t heal as expected, and they are then considered chronic wounds that require a visit to a wound care center.
The Wound Healing Center at HCA Houston Healthcare West provides comprehensive treatment and management of non-healing, chronic and complex wounds. The best treatment for chronic wounds will vary from one person to the next, but we use the most innovative therapies and advanced wound care products available to treat all wounds.
Our wound care experts are certified by the American Board of Wound Management, a formal recognition of master-level knowledge and specialty practice in wound management. Your care team may include board-certified physicians and surgeons, registered nurses certified in wound care, and clinical staff, including registered dietitians, diabetes educators and physical therapists.
