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.

    Advanced care for wounds

    We offer many therapeutic treatment options, including:

    • Cellular tissue products — Using living tissue (skin grafts, stem cells) to heal wounds
    • Compression therapy — Applying pressure to a wound using specialized, stretchy bandages to reduce swelling
    • Debridement — Removing dead or infected tissue that may hinder healing
    • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) — Using a pressurized, oxygen-rich environment to promote wound healing, usually in a hyperbaric chamber
    • Negative pressure wound therapy — Procedure involving a medical vacuum to increase blood flow to the affected area

    We do everything we can to ensure you have access to the resources you need and care you deserve. This includes giving you access to other resources in our TriStar Health family of hospitals. Together, this network offers even more wound treatments, such as limb preservation and severe infection management.

    Benefits of care at our wound and vascular center

    Blood flow or limited circulation due to an underlying vascular disease can slow wound healing. This is especially true for wounds in your extremities, such as your ankles and toes. Because of this relationship between your circulatory system and your ability to heal wounds, vascular surgeons are a key part of our wound care team.

    Some vascular disorders that may cause slow healing wounds include advanced peripheral vascular disease, lymphedema and diabetic vascular disease. Our surgeons have additional training to diagnose and treat these disorders and prevent them from hindering your recovery. Some of the procedures they may use are revascularization (blockage removal) treatments, such as angioplasty or bypass surgery. These surgeries restore or improve your circulation.
