PRISMA HEALTH TUOMEY HOSPITAL / SPECIAL TO THE SUMTER ITEM
Last week, the Wound Healing Center at Prisma Health Tuomey Hospital and the Sumter Chamber of Commerce celebrated the ribbon cutting for the center's new Vein Care clinic. The clinic offers advanced, minimally invasive laser treatment in an outpatient setting. Michael Naylor, MD, a vascular surgeon with Sumter Surgical, will provide the services. Vascular disease of the vein affects millions of people throughout the U.S. each year and is often a factor in the development of chronic, non-healing wounds. Vascular disease - including peripheral artery disease (PAD) - also contributes to 80 percent of all non-traumatic limb amputations each year. Vein care is especially important for patients with limited mobility or transportation issues. For more information, contact (803) 774-8715.
