Advanced Wound Management

Each year approximately 8 million Americans suffer with chronic wounds. However, studies show wound care treatment facilities have reduced amputation rates and shortened hospital stays. Upon referral from a physician, patients with wound care needs will meet with our staff for a consultation. The Keller Wound Healing Center team will work with your physician to develop a treatment plan that is right for you. Information about your progress will be provided to your physician on an ongoing basis. Our physician-driven, multi-disciplinary approach to outpatient wound care has a superior success rate in facilitating the healing process.
