Our Wound Care Center provides compassionate, exceptional, and comprehensive care to our patients with acute or chronic wounds. Patients are provided with individualized care, starting from an initial assessment and focused treatment plan to ongoing treatment and consultations on care management.
- Caused by trauma from falls or injuries
- Post-operative wounds
- Pressure ulcers (elbows, hips, buttocks, heels, etc.)
- Leg wounds (arterial or venous) and foot ulcers
- Post-radiation wounds
An initial treatment plan is developed on the patient’s first visit. The plan is modified if needed at each subsequent visit depending upon the healing level of the wound or the need of the patient. A variety of treatment modalities are utilized, including debridement (removal of non-healing tissue), topical products such as gels or foams, and infection management.
Recognizing that a wound can have a significant impact on the quality of life of both the patient and their family, we strive to simplify home care as much as possible. We work with family members to teach them to help with dressing changes. A visiting nurse from an outside agency can also be arranged for eligible patients to provide home care in between visits to the Wound Care Center.
How We Are Different
We partner closely with our primary care physicians, especially for those patients who have co-morbidities. Chronic conditions including diabetes, chronic inflammatory diseases, neuropathy, and obesity may impact wound healing.
Our team of specialists helps manage the infection and control pain levels. Behavioral therapists are also available to work with patients suffering from anxiety and depression caused by their wounds. Patients can be referred to our vascular or plastic surgeons for possible surgical interventions to aid wound healing.
