Porter Wound Healing Center
The Porter Wound Healing Center, with a healing rate of well over 90 percent, was designed by experts in wound care to provide treatments that promote rapid wound healing, reduce the need for amputations and return your quality of life. Our mission is to heal chronic wounds in 10-12 weeks or less by coordinating clinical treatments to provide the highest quality of care and to avoid amputation of limbs.
What is a chronic wound?
