Types of Wounds

A chronic, non-healing wound is not a disease, but rather a complication of one or more underlying conditions. Non-healing wounds require specialist treatment in order to consider and manage any co-morbidities and promote the progression of the wound to a healthy cascade of healing.


The expert clinicians at Healogics wound healing centres offer treatment for Chronic, non-healing wounds with a range of underlying complications, including treatment of Diabetic Foot Ulcers.

Chronic ulceration is particularly prevalent among the estimated 3 million adults living with Diabetes in the UK. These wounds are particularly at risk of complication and require specialist care to avoid amputation; there are approximately 70 amputations related to Diabetic Foot Ulcers a week in the UK, of which, 80% are potentially avoidable.
