Antibiotics are used as appropriate when there is infection. Frequently we do use antibiotics as a part of treatment but not for every patient.
How long will it take my wound to heal?
Wounds come in many levels of severity. Depending on the severity of the wound, treatment at the wound center can heal wounds in two to three weeks while other wounds may take several months of treatment before they heal. I have seen patients who have had a chronic, untreated wound for years. With the right treatment, I’ve seen those wounds heal. In fact, last year 93 percent of our patients had a healed wound in 14 weeks or less.
