The Advanced Wound Care Center at Athens Limestone Hospital is an outpatient clinic that specializes in treating patients with chronic, slow- or non-healing wounds.
Beginning with a thorough evaluation, we work with your primary care physician and individualize your treatment to deal with other complications, such as diabetes, infection or poor circulation that might hinder your healing. Our specialists focus on the latest treatments and technologies to get you on the road to recovery.
We work hand-in-hand with primary physicians to manage and treat any underlying medical conditions. Your doctor will receive regular updates on your progress.
Our comprehensive approach can heal wounds that have resisted other treatments. The Wound Center specializes in surgical and sharp debridement, topical dressings, compression therapy, negative pressure therapy, biological skin substitutes and hyperbaric oxygen therapy. We also have surgical specialty in revascularization, skin grafting and flaps and deep debridement.

Our doctors have received special training in caring for all kinds of advanced wounds and will be using the latest treatments and technologies, so that our patients can enjoy significant and noticeable improvements. When wounds heal, quality of life improves.
