The Wound Healing Center
The Wound Healing Center at Mission Regional Medical Center is an outpatient program that provides specialized treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds, which are defined as sores or wounds that have not significantly improved from conventional treatments. Associated with inadequate circulation, poorly functioning veins, and immobility, non-healing wounds lead to lower quality of life and may lead to amputations. When wounds persist, a specialized approach is required for healing.
With a 91% wound healing rate and average time to heal of 6 weeks (3 weeks less than the national average), the patients of Mission Regional Medical Center receive the highest quality chronic wound treatment available. Feel free to call 956-323-9030 to discuss scheduling options.
