An ulcer is called chronic when its healing does not progress in its normal pathway. Majorities were males in the productive age group, and left leg was commonly affected. These experts work together to determine the cause of the ulcer and develop an individualized treatment program. The goals of treatment are to relieve pain, speed recovery and heal the wound. Each patient's treatment plan is individualized, based on the patient's health, medical condition and ability to care for the wound.
