Are you a candidate for specialized wound care?
If you suffer from a chronic or non-healing wound, ask your physician about a referral to our wound clinic, or contact us directly for an assessment. If you are a candidate for this outpatient program, the wound clinic will immediately work with you and your doctor to deliver the following:
Proven clinical protocols
An individualized, comprehensive plan of care
Assessment and ongoing care by our highly skilled team of wound care specialists
Education for you and your family to include wound prevention, nutrition and hygiene to help the healing process at home.
Since problem wounds are rarely the result from a single cause, we treat the whole person, not just the wound. We consider psychological, social and physical factors as well in order to develop the best treatment plan.
We work closely with your primary care or referring physician to ensure the best possible outcome. We also place a major emphasis on education; teaching you how to care for your injury to enhance the healing process.
Chronic wounds can be a result of diabetes, poor circulation or other medical conditions. A multi-discipline staff of clinicians administer the latest medical treatment for persistent wounds; as well as educate patients on ways to protect themselves from developing chronic wounds.
Our treatment plans are designed to complement the care your own physician provides, ensuring that your health care team is always working together to provide the treatment that's right for you.
Most treatments are covered by Medicare/Medicaid, HMOs and other private insurance plans and may include:
Specialized wound dressings
Off-loading (taking pressure off the mwound)
Sharp debridement (removal of dead tissue)
