Advanced Treatments to Help You Heal

Wound Care Treatments

Our wound care experts are dedicated to comprehensive, quality care that improves your health and quality of life.

Wound Treatment

As a comprehensive wound center, we provide care to those suffering from chronic wounds in a way no other provider can.  Some wounds require advanced dressings or extensive treatments that are difficult to provide in a private office setting.  In addition, complex wounds may require multiple additional therapies or experienced wound nurses to provide specialized care.  

Working together with the referring physician and other care providers, our staff provides individualized care and offers some of the most current modalities including treatment for:

  • Arterial ulcers 
  • Burns    
  • Compromised skin flaps and grafts
  • Crush injuries
  • Diabetic ulcers                            
  • Infected wounds
  • Ischemic ulcers
  • Metabolic wounds
  • Necrotizing infections    
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Radiation injury     
  • Some insect bites
  • Surgical dehiscence
  • Vascular wounds
  • Venous ulcers

We utilize best clinical practices that begin with a thorough patient evaluation and diagnostic testing to determine wound etiology.  An individualized care plan is then developed using evidence-based therapies that are highly effective in facilitating the healing process, including:

  • Debridement
  • Offloading
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
  • Bioengineered tissue alternatives
  • Specialty dressings and wraps
  • Compression therapy
  • Topical medications

What to Expect 

During your initial visit to our center, our team will evaluate your wound and general health. They’ll review your medical, wound and overall medication history. You may also need special tests that will provide us with information about blood flow and oxygen flow in the wound area.
 
After we review your medical and wound history, we will create a treatment plan specifically designed for you. You will receive a full treatment plan including nutrition, wound dressing, and protection from future injury.  At each appointment, we will evaluate your progress and can make modifications to your treatment as needed.
 
We will keep in contact with your primary care physician to alert them on your treatment as well as your progress.This team approach will be the best treatment for your wound.
