Wound healing consists of a cascade of interrelating reactions triggered by an injury. Any disruption to the cascade could lead to delay or non-healing. A chronic wound frequently has multiple etiologies.
It is estimated that 1-2% of the U.S. population will have a chronic wound at some time during their life. The number of these wounds, the cost of their treatment, and their impact on an individual’s quality of life and independence is almost certain to grow with aging and the increasing incidence of obesity in our population.

Wound management is a complicated process and the standard of care can be summarized into six principles.
“Dr. Harman is the most professional, empathetic, informative, and personable person I have encountered in my 62 years. I would trust him with my life as well as that of my family. He is the best!”

“They helped me get my life back without controlling every aspect of my life. Without this facility I’m not sure where I would be right now.”
