Wound Care

Advanced Wound Healing. Advanced Wound Care.

Most wounds heal with gauze, tape, and patience. For those that don’t, the Wound Center at Claiborne Medical Center offers advanced wound care for non-healing wounds. We provide you with individualized care to heal your wound and get you back to the life you love.


What is a Non-Healing Wound?

A non-healing wound is more complex and difficult to treat. These types of wounds may have been present for a long time, show no signs of improvement, or continue to recur despite standard wound treatment. Medical problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease complicate the problem even more.

The Claiborne Wound Center in Tazewell, TN is the only wound care center in the Tri-State area. Our center provides expert staff who will provide you with individualized care to heal your wound and get you back to the life you love.
