If you're suffering from a non-healing wound, you're not alone. Every year, chronic wounds caused by diabetes, poor circulation or other conditions, keep 3 to 5 million Americans just like you from doing the things they love to do. But the Wound Care Center can help. Our team of doctors and nurses is dedicated to treating wounds. Including many that have resisted healing after months and even years of traditional treatment. It's all we do. In fact, most Wound Care Center patients are completely healed in just a few months.Your first visit.
When you come in, our staff will evaluate your wound and general health. They'll also review your medical 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 program.
When 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 Wound Care Center to provide treatment, evaluate progress and make any changes that might be needed. You (or your caregiver) will be given detailed instructions in home care, dressing (bandage) changes and protecting the wound from further injury.You're a vital part of the program.
Much of the success of your treatment depends on you. You must keep your appointments, follow directions carefully and watch your progress closely between visits. And any time you or your family members have questions, our staff is available. In fact, we encourage you to ask questions.
