Along with common risk factors for skin breakdown and wound healing complications, bariatric patients have additional factors and co-morbidities that can challenge even the most seasoned wound care professional.

We will offer practical suggestions for preventing and treating these patients while discussing physiological requirements and complications of wound healing associated with obesity.
