Wound care

Wound care involves medical intervention to heal a wound after injury. Specialized treatment is provided for wounds that are non-healing or refuse to heal on their own. To promote healing, learning how to properly dress and care for wounds is vital.

Wound healing treatments we offer

Our wound care specialists are equipped to care for a wide variety of wounds. Whether you need treatment for a soft tissue injury or surgery for a nonhealing, chronic wound, we're here to help.

Our wound treatment process

Every patient receives customized attention, from diagnosis to final treatment. Your wound care specialist will start by collecting your medical history and conducting a physical and other tests.

We will then create and implement a customized care plan. This care will include infection control, which is key to long-term, complete healing.

As you transition to outpatient treatment, your wound specialist will prepare you for independent disease management and home care.

Wound management and general surgery

Your treatment may require surgery, so our wound specialists may consult with our surgical team to provide the most complete care possible.

Our experts also partner with surgeons to prevent and treat non-healing surgical wounds. Our teams work together to make sure your wounds get higher quality care and better outcomes.
