Most wounds heal with gauze, tape, and patience. The types of wounds treated at the Methodist Wound Treatment Center are more complex and difficult to treat. They may have been present for a long time, show no signs of improvement, or continue to recur despite conventional treatments. Complicating the situation may be a medical problem such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease.
