Amputation Prevention Center
The St. John Providence Amputation Prevention Centers are available to care for you at our Detroit and Southfield locations. We are dedicated to preventing lower limb loss and optimizing outcomes for patients with chronic, non-healing wounds.

If you or a loved one has a wound or sore that has not healed in 30 days, you may have what is referred to as a “chronic, non-healing” wound.

Often complicated by underlying conditions such as diabetes, circulation problems or previous radiation treatment, the simplest of wounds can turn into a significant problem because the body’s normal healing process is affected. Other types of chronic wounds result from pressure, trauma or infection. Chronic, non-healing wounds can have serious health consequences and may adversely affect your quality of life.

Chronic, Non-Healing Treatments
As a comprehensive wound healing center, we specialize in the treatment of all chronic, non-healing wounds including:

  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Venous ulcers
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Non-healing, surgical wounds
  • Arterial/ischemic ulcers
  • Post-radiation ulcers
  • Traumatic wounds
  • Infected wounds
  • Crush injuries
  • Compromised flaps or grafts
