That said, your wound will definitely be able to heal, but you must consider other factors that may contribute to the existence of the wound. We provide vascular studies to check the oxygen flow to your lower extremities, venous testing to diagnose any problems in the veins of the lower extremities, and molecular diagnostics to identify any bacteria present on the wound bed. These tests help us diagnose any problems keeping the wound from healing.
