Abstract: Wound-healing complications are a clinical problem with a considerable socioeconomic burden. Since several nutrients play a physiological role in wound healing, supplementation of these nutrients may improve wound healing. Under surgical stress, the metabolic demand for nutrients increases, which if not met may slow down or stop the wound from healing thus becoming chronic wound. This article directed to acknowledge the effect of L-ALANINE L-GLUTAMINE and other nutrient supplementation in post operative wound healing. This is a case study of 300 patients operated in Noble Hospital, Pune, Maharashtra, India. Cases were selected after taken well informed consents from patients. Patients were aware of the cost and period of treatment before starting the study.
