Comprehensive Wound CareOur physicians and certified registered nurses, dedicated to wound care management, offer a variety of treatment options. Depending on the type and severity of a wound, the treatment may include:
Your First VisitWhen you come in, our specialist will evaluate your wound and general health. They'll review your medical, wound and medication history. A blood test may be involved. You may also need special tests that give us information about blood flow and oxygen flow in the wound area.
Your Healing ProgramWhen your test results are in, we'll put together a treatment program based on your special needs. This program will include regular visits to the Center for Advance Wound Healing to provide treatment, evaluate progress and make any changes that might be needed. You (or your care-giver) will be given detailed instructions in home care, nutrition, dressing (bandage) changes and protecting the wound from further injury.
