Wound Care Clinic
When a wound doesn’t heal and isn’t responding to treatment within 30 days, it’s considered a chronic or nonhealing wound. Sores need blood circulation to heal, and some health problems affect blood flow and make it harder for your body to heal. Diabetes, kidney disease, peripheral artery disease or damaged blood vessels can all slow down recovery.
We treat many types of chronic wounds, including:
- Arterial and venous ulcers (damage to arteries and veins)
- Diabetic ulcers on the legs and feet
- Nonhealing surgical wounds and skin grafts
- Pressure ulcers (bed sores)
- Traumatic injuries
- Infected wounds
- Wounds from radiation therapy
Our wound care specialists can treat even the most difficult-to-heal wounds. We draw from the latest approaches in wound healing to create a treatment plan that will help you feel better as quickly as possible. Your team will show you how to care for your wound and let you know what improves — and what slows — healing.
One of the wound healing options we offer is skin substitutes that are made in a lab (bioengineered). They are essentially dressings that protect your wound with a skin-like covering to help your body grow new tissue around your sore and assist your body’s natural healing process.
Vacuum-assisted closures are a type of wound dressing is attached to a pump that removes excess fluid from your wound and improves blood flow.
