Dr. Singh :

Hello, You will need to see a General Surgeon for surgical care of the decubitus ulcer. You may need surgical debridement of the ulcer to help with healing and this is usually done by general surgeons. If this does not work, reconstruction may be needed. Please use the following link to find one in your area: http://doctor.webmd.com/physician_finder/home.aspx?sponsor=core
