If you suffer from a chronic wound, you’re not alone. In fact, it’s estimated that more than 2 million Americans struggle with wounds that fail to heal. Patients with poor blood circulation, diabetes or long-term immobilization are most vulnerable to chronic wound conditions. Wounds from traumatic injury or surgical incisions can also require special attention. Spectrum Health recognizes that chronic wounds require specialized care. The Wound Healing Program treats all types of wounds, including:
• Ulcers resulting from poor blood flow in the arteries or veins
• Diabetic foot and leg ulcers
• Pressure ulcers
• Wounds caused by radiation treatments
• Post-surgical wounds
Spectrum Health United Hospital is pleased to announce the arrival of Thomas Tavarone, MD to the Wound Healing Program. Dr. Tavarone joins the program in September and is accepting new patients. Dr. Tavarone has extensive experience in general surgery, wound healing and the treatment of burns.
Additionally, the Spectrum Health United Hospital Wound Healing Program was scheduled to be relocated on Monday, September 16, 2013 to 1208 West Oak, Greenville, MI. This move will allow for increased services and better access for patients.
