BANGALORE : An advanced wound care centre was inaugurated at M S Ramaiah Hospital by Gokula Educational Foundation chairman Dr M R Jayaram recently.

The centre aims to maintain a higher limb salvage rate and is equipped to assess peripheral circulation and predict wound healing. The centre is a joint venture by ConvaTec, a medical product company, and MS Ramaiah Hospital.
