Wound care is a subspecialty. Patients who need help in wound healing are referred to the Wound Center by their primary care practitioner or surgeon.

Our Wound Care Services

We typically treat wounds that cannot be closed by surgery, skin grafting or stitches. The wounds need to heal by secondary intention or from the inside to the outside.

The following types of wounds can be treated by our wound care specialists:

  • pressure ulcers
  • diabetic wounds
  • arterial and venous insufficiency wounds
  • frost bite
  • infections
  • burns
  • surgical wounds
  • skin trauma (e.g., dog bite, road rash, etc.)
  • ostomy care

Some types of treatment may include:

  • sharp debridement
  • pulsed lavage
  • vacuum assisted closure (VAC)
  • compression wrappings and specialty dressings

While receiving treatment we take measurements and photographs to gauge the healing progress. Throughout the wound healing process we stay in contact with the patient's physician to relay progress and areas of concern for best outcomes.
