The Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine at Berkeley Medical Center is dedicated to healing chronic wounds, preventing lower limb loss, and improving outcomes for our patients.
Most wounds, minor cuts and scratches, heal on their own within a week. If you or a loved one has a wound that is not healing properly, you may have what is referred to as a complex or non-healing wound. Underlying conditions, such as diabetes, circulation problems, or previous radiation treatment, can turn a simple wound into a significant problem when the body’s normal healing process is affected.
