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.
- Electrical stimulation – The body uses electrical signals to trigger all its actions, including healing. This treatment uses an electrical current to make stalled cells around a wound start healing again.
- Growth factor therapy – The body naturally produces growth factors – substances that help cells grow and heal. We apply growth factors in gel form directly to wounds to help them heal faster.
- Infrared therapy – Patients can use the Anodyne® Therapy System at home to increase circulation and relieve pain.
- 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.
- Ultrasound – This treatment method jumpstarts the body’s natural healing process by targeting wounds with high frequency vibrations.
At some of our locations, we also offer hyperbaric oxygen therapy for chronic wounds. Learn about hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
In addition to these treatments, we’ll provide educational resources to help you keep wounds clean and free from infection at home. We also offer a number of support groups and classes for patients with chronic wounds. Find support near you.
