Before You Arrive

We strive to provide you with the best possible wound care.

While You’re Here

Our team of physicians and nurses will evaluate your wound, health and medical history including x-rays if you have them. Tests may be conducted to determine blood flow and tissue oxygenation as well as to indicate if there is any infection present. Together with your physician, we’ll develop a treatment program based on our assessment of your individual needs.

Much of the success of your treatment depends on you. We count on you to follow directions carefully and watch your progress closely. Call your wound care doctor if you notice:

  • Increasing redness around the wound
  • Warm or red skin
  • A red streak spreading from the wound
  • An increase in wound drainage
  • Pus or cloudy fluid draining from wound
  • A foul odor or abnormal smell

You’ll learn to care for your wound at home and how to protect yourself from further injuries. The staff at the Wound Care Center is available to answer questions and give you the support you need.
