After Having bypass surgery in my left leg I contracted a infection in the groin wound. After taking antibiotics for 10 days the wound would not close. After following surgeon’s orders for two weeks it would not heal. So on the advice of a Memorial staff member I was scheduled to go to the Wound Center at Memorial Medical Center. Then I was checked out by Dr Kolli and his great staff. I was cleaned up and given a new procedure . And in 4 days the wound began closing and healing.
