Wound Care Therapy
If your wound hasn’t healed after 30 days, it’s time to seek treatment.
Chronic wound treatment options
We treat all types of chronic (non-healing) wounds. Our wound care team uses advanced therapies to help you heal, including:
- Casts – Leg and foot casts prevent further damage to the skin around ulcers to ensure they heal properly.
- Compression therapy – Patients wear compression stockings that are designed to increase blood flow and improve circulation in the ankles and legs to treat venous insufficiency ulcers.
- Debridement – We remove dead tissue from wounds to help them heal.
- Medication – Your doctor may prescribe anti-inflammatory drugs or antibiotics to treat your wound.
- Negative pressure wound therapy – Also called wound vac, we use vacuum suction to draw fluid from the wound through a special dressing connected to a pump.
- Skin graft – Our surgeons remove skin from one part of your body and transplant it to replace the skin around a non-healing wound.
In addition to these treatments, we’ll provide educational resources to help you keep wounds clean and free from infection at home.
