Wound Care Center
Welcome to the Wound Care Center. Our professional staff is trained to provide a specialized, comprehensive course of treatment to assist in healing your problem wound. During your course of treatment, our Center will work with your regular physician to assure complete continuity of all your medical services.
At any given time almost six million Americans suffer from problem wounds. There are many different types of wounds. Some are associated with complications with diabetes and other related vascular disorders. Other types include pressure sores and traumatic wounds. It can be very frustrating and time consuming to heal these wounds. At the Center, we utilize the most up-to-date approaches to wound healing and remain current in new scientific advances in wound care.
You will undergo a thorough diagnostic examination to identify the type of wound you have and the underlying problems causing the wound. After this, a program specially tailored to your needs will be initiated based on the most effective treatment options. Your treatment may include:
- Wound infection management
- Physical therapy
- Vascular assessment
- Laboratory assessment
- Nutritional evaluation
- Pain management
- Diabetic education
- Nuclear medicine testing
- Radiology evaluation
- Regular wound debridements
- Hyperbaric Oxygen (HBO) therapy when appropriate
Once a treatment plan has been initiated, you will visit the Center on a regularly scheduled basis for wound care. You will be instructed on how to administer your own wound care at home between visits, as well as how to protect your wound from further complications. You are the most important part of your healing process. Keeping appointments and following directions clearly are critical to attaining a positive healing outcome.
