Chronic Wounds

Most people have had a wound at some time such as a cut, a graze, a surgical incision, burn or scald, and these usually heal in a few days by keeping them clean and wearing a simple bandage.  Not all wounds, however, heal easily; some take months to heal particularly on the legs. A common cause of chronic leg wounds is associated with chronic vein conditions and varicose veins.

The staff at the Charlottesville Vein Center are experts in wound care and treating and managing wounds associated with chronic venous disease.

We also work in tandem with Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital’s Wound Care Center to provide advanced treatments that maximize the body’s capacity to heal chronic and complex wounds.
