June is Men’s Health Month and June 15th-21st is Men’s Health Week.

If you or a loved one have ever suffered from a wound that does not show improvement within four weeks of treatment or requires daily treatment and dressings, it should be referred to a wound specialist for further assessment and treatment. Chronic wounds affect nearly six million patients in America, costing the US health care system an estimated $20 billion annually. Every year, more than 1 million people with diabetes develop foot ulcers, and 20-30% of those cases will eventually require amputation.
