What is a Pressure Ulcer?

Pressure ulcers develop when areas without sensation are subjected to unrelieved pressure for too long. Common scenarios include paraplegics who sit for several hours at a time and sedated patients laying in hospital beds.

When the ulcers are deep enough to expose muscle or bone, reconstructive surgery is a good option. Furthermore, our faculty are pioneering new approaches to treat pressure ulcers. Call today for a consultation.
