Specialty Care for Wounds

A minor cut or scratch poses little problem for most people, but for some, a wound like this can result in serious infection. More than five million Americans do not have the ability to heal properly after a wound because of diabetes, poor circulation, paralysis or other health conditions.

Common wound types include pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, surgical and abdominal wounds as well as ulcers in the arteries and veins.

Fairview wound specialists help patients with slow- or non-healing wounds. Our highly trained team of doctors and nurses bring advanced training in artery and vessels, general and plastic surgery, infectious diseases and foot/ankle surgery. 

Our team uses the latest technologies and methods to heal wounds. More than 85 percent of our patients return to work and home with a fully healed wound.
