It is estimated that 6.7 million people currently live with chronic wounds
and that number is expected to grow at more than two percent for the next
decade. The rising incidence is fueled by an aging population and increasing
rates of diseases and conditions such as diabetes, obesity and the late
effects of radiation therapy. Untreated chronic wounds can lead to diminished
quality of life and possibly amputation of the affected limb. When wounds
persist, The Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine Center at Jupiter Medical
Center provides the specialized approach required for healing.
