When Is a Wound Considered Chronic?

Any type of wound, sore, ulcer, or cut that does not heal in approximately 30 days is considered chronic. This could also be evidence that you have a peripheral vascular disease or another pre-existing medical condition that is affecting your body’s natural healing process and blood flow. You need specialized treatment from wound care experts. Our vascular specialists at Washington Township Medical Foundation can help.

Correcting vascular problems is a major component of wound care, and we offer an experienced and interdisciplinary wound care team, including:

  • Washington Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine. This team is made up of doctors, nurses, therapists, and other medical professionals using advanced care treatments to help wounds heal. In addition, the clinic provides access to physical therapists, dietitians, pain management specialists, and diabetes educators.
  • Washington Lymphedema Services. This staff is certified to treat lymphedema patients, helping each patient learn how to manage the condition and keep it under control. Through special massage techniques and knowledge of the latest treatment options, certified lymphedema therapists and physical therapists help sufferers regain control and take their lives back through quality, local care.

Conditions and treatments include:

Chronic venous disease – Chronic venous diseases can prevent healing in the legs. Our experienced vascular experts offer therapies and treatments that include intermittent pneumatic compression, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and––in some cases––venous surgery or skin grafting.

Arterial/Venous leg ulcer – Leg ulcers are open sores/wounds that refuse to heal. Symptoms of venous leg ulcers include itching, leg swelling, and pain. These ulcers are often caused by venous insufficiency, which can cause blood flow to slow down and affect leg veins.

Diabetic foot ulcer – This condition is an open wound or sore. About 15 percent of diabetes patients experience this condition. Of this number, 6 percent may be hospitalized due to complications related to the wound or infections. We also treat leg infections and complications that can result from diabetes.

Post-operation – It is important to prevent infections at surgical sites. Our team provides complete care for post-surgical wounds.
