Many situations and conditions create increased risk for someone to develop wounds requiring medical attention including immobility, poor circulation, peripheral artery disease, malnutrition, diabetes, and more.
We treat patients with the following types of wounds, including, but not limited to:
Chronic wounds are serious; they can both limit your activities of daily living and lead to very serious infections if not managed properly. Our multi-faceted approach means our trained staff includes nursing, infection control, lab, radiology, dietetics, respiratory, and additional specialties as needed to deliver comprehensive care tailored to each person's needs. We also use vacuum-assisted closure (wound vac), when appropriate, to help wounds heal. During the treatment, a device decreases air pressure on the wound and pulls the edges of the wound together, which can help some wounds heal more quickly.
