Wound healing services

We deliver outpatient care for those who have chronic wounds — those that have not shown significant healing in 30 days, or that haven’t completely healed in eight weeks. It is important to seek a medical opinion as soon as a problem is suspected.The sooner a patient is evaluated and treated, the more likely they are to heal properly.

Our care team offers many advanced wound care treatments including, but not limited to:

  • Cellulitis therapy
  • Compression therapy
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
  • Infection management and prevention
  • Total contact casting
  • Wound cleaning
  • Wound dressing

Advanced wound dressing techniques include:

  • Bio-engineered skin substitutes

  • Epidermal autografting
  • Negative pressure vacuum therapy
  • Weekly debridement of devitalized tissue and/or biofilms

Helping you care for your wound at home 

Our doctors and nurses listen to understand you and your health concerns. We show you how to improve your wound-cleaning hygiene at home as part of your personalized recovery plan. Our goal is to help prevent rehospitalization for infection or wound-healing complications, and improve your quality of life.

What to expect

At the first appointment, a patient will undergo preliminary tests to assess the blood circulation to arms and legs. Debridement — or cleaning up of an infected wound — may be necessary. Then, a case management team will evaluate physical, emotional and other needs. Each patient’s progress is tracked through weekly visits. 

Additional testing, including wound culturing, may be needed to help determine the most effective approach to treatment and ongoing care. Personalized clinical care plans are developed based on the type of wound a person has and what caused it. Each wound varies, and treatment can be just as varied.

The wound care team will develop a treatment plan with the referring physician and the patient and adapt it later as necessary. The tools for treatment may include hyperbaric oxygen therapy, vacuum-assisted closure, compression wraps, biological skin substitutes, vascular elevations and patient and family education. 

Additional services, including nursing care, physical therapy, nutritional considerations or pharmaceutical interventions, also may be recommended. Education is provided in order to help patients prevent future wounds.

To ensure that a patient is receiving the right care for their situation, a panel of consulting clinicians will regularly review their treatment plan.
