What is a Non-healing Wound?
A non-healing wound or chronic wound or slow-healing wound is a wound that is not healing or slow to heal.
If a wound has not started healing after 4 weeks or has not healed completely after 8 weeks, such wound is known as a non-healing wound.

The causes of non-healing wounds include:
- Nerve damage
- Weak immune system
- Inactivity or immobility
- Poor blood circulation
- Poor nutrition
- Excess intake of alcohol

Treatment of non-healing wounds
We treat wounds at Southwest Regional wound care center using different unique treatment options which include:
Biofilm based wound care
A biofilm is a thick film covering the surface of a wound. When bacteria enter a wound, attacks the surface and defenses of the host. The bacteria at that point for a thick covering very quickly which covers up the surface of the wound.
We developed multiple tools at the Southwest regional wound care center through laboratory and clinical studies to treat biofilm.
The strategy involves changing the life structures of the wound to evacuate the crevices and repetitive tissue. This gives an advantage to the patient which facilitates the healing of the wound.
Venous Disease Management
Southwest Regional injury care center treats venous wounds utilizing office-based assessments and management. Venous wounds are treated with Laser Vein Closure (EVLT) and Ultrasound-guided Sclerotherapy.
In Laser vein closure, the greater saphenous vein is shut so as to shunt blood through a superior working profound vein system to encourage faster healing.
With the ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy, a sclerosing agent is injected into the branch varicose veins to prevent lesser efficient veins from working. This gives room for only the most efficient veins to work.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment
Hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT) is a treatment increase the oxygen content in the blood. A patient is set in an oxygen chamber that produces 100% oxygen to build the oxygen content in the blood for the purpose of enhancing the wound healing process.
At the point when the patient breaths in 100% unadulterated oxygen, it immerses the blood plasma of the patient.
Oxygen content that is 20 or multiple times more than typical oxygen content is transferred to the tissues in the body prompting faster healing of wounds. It also enhances the body’s immune system.
Diagnostics and Studies
We also conduct other diagnostics and studies to improve wound conditions. They include Electromyography/Nerve Conduct study, Vascular studies, and Molecular diagnostics.
