Non-Healing Wounds

Non-healing wounds can result from diabetes, immobilization, poor circulation, pressure or other conditions and may resist healing due to infection and anemia or use of steroids, aging, smoking and obesity. Any wound that has not had significant improvement in two weeks would be appropriate for a consultation at the Wound Healing Program at Overlook Medical Center.

Wounds with the following clinical signs should be addressed with more urgency, especially if the patient has been diagnosed with diabetes:

  • Redness, warmth and pain
  • Increased drainage or drainage with an odor
  • Tenderness, swelling

Most patients who participate through regular visits to our program heal successfully, even those who have been suffering from chronic wounds for years. Among the benefits of treatment at our center are quicker recovery, lower rates of hospitalization, increased prevention of prolonged and/or permanent disability, and decreased risk of limb amputation for people with severe wounds.

Wound healing services are available at the Carole and Joseph Katz MD Wound Healing Center at Overlook Medical Center and Overlook Wound Healing – Union Campus.
