Poor circulation, diabetes, trauma from surgery, bone infections and pressure ulcers are some of the conditions which may result in wounds that do not respond to ordinary treatment. Since every patient’s wound is unique, each patient receives a thorough diagnostic exam to identify the type of wound and the underlying causes. Physicians from a variety of disciplines will be involved in the patient’s care, where appropriate. These may include general surgeons, podiatrists, infectious disease specialists, plastic surgeons and vascular surgeons.

A customized wound management plan is developed using the most effective approach and may include:

  • Compression therapy
  • Diabetic education
  • Debridement
  • Home health referrals
  • Infectious disease management
  • Laboratory evaluation
  • Nuclear medicine
  • Nutritional management
  • Occupational or physical therapy
  • Pain management
  • Patient education and counseling
  • Podiatry consultations
  • Skin care
  • Skin grafting
  • X-rays and bone scans
  • Vascular evaluation
  • Wound assessment
