Advanced Treatment for Wounds

Your Role in Healing

Much of the success of your treatment depends on you. You will need to follow directions carefully and watch your progress closely. You will learn about caring for your wound at home including how to change dressings and how to protect yourself from further injuries.

How to Start Healing:

Generally the physician presently treating your wound will refer you to our Center. Or, you can make your appointment directly.

  • When you call for your first appointment, we'll ask you a few questions about your wound and health in general.
  • Before beginning treatment, our team of doctors, nurses, and therapists will thoroughly evaluate your wound and review your health and medical history.
  • Tests might be conducted to tell us more about your blood flow and tissue oxygenation as well as to determine if there's any infection present.
  • Together with your physician, we will develop a treatment program based on our assessment of your special needs. Your program will likely involve regular visits to the Center. Your progress is meticulously documented and adjusted as necessary.
  • We are in constant communication with your doctor throughout your care. Once your wound is healed, you will return to your doctor for follow-up care. And of course, you will continue with your personal physician for any related ailments like diabetes and hypertension.
