Being healthy and active are two of life's greatest pleasures. For people who have wounds that won't heal because of diabetes or other health conditions, life can lose its enjoyment due to pain, fear and reduced ability to get around.
But there is good news - effective treatments can help heal wounds. Jones Regional Medical Center's Wound Clinic helps patients get healthy and back to an active lifestyle.
We are very fortunate to have two physicians who specialize in wound care and treatment at Jones Regional Medical Center. Dr. Kirk Kilburg sees patients every Wednesday morning and sees any type of patients no matter where his/her wound/s are located. Dr. David Hemmes is a Podiatrist who can also see patients with wounds on the foot and below the ankle on a weekly basis, usually Tuesday afternoons.
