Wound Care Treatment

To begin your wound care treatment process, a wound care specialist will take great care to understand your individual condition and establish a treatment plan.

The initial appointment consists of a full assessment to determine the wound’s causes along with the appropriate classification and size of the wound, your overall health status and your ability to continue with needed therapies until the issues are resolved. Based on this evaluation, we’ll customize a treatment plan using therapies best suited for your specific needs. While everyone’s plan is individualized, yours may include:

  • Specialized wound dressings
  • Debridement, or removing damaged tissue and foreign objects from a wound
  • Compression therapy
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
  • Prescription medication, such as growth factors, shown to speed healing
  • Bioengineered skin grafting
  • Management of edema, or swelling cause by inflammation and injury
