Special care for slow-healing wounds

St. Luke's highly trained wound healing team specializes in care of slow- or non-healing wounds. Working with specialty physicians, the team creates individual care plans to heal wounds acquired from vascular surgery, general surgery, plastic surgery, pressure ulcers and diabetic ulcers. We educate patients and families on how to care for wounds at home to support a faster, more stable healing process.

We treat a range of conditions, including:

  • Venous stasis ulcers
  • Arterial ulcers
  • Diabetic (neuropathic) ulcers
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Chronic wounds
  • Acute wounds not responding to therapy
  • Draining wounds
  • Fistulas
  • Wound dressing changes
  • Wound VAC care
  • Burns
  • Gangrene
  • Diabetic wounds
  • Surgical wounds
  • Trauma wounds
  • Radiation tissue damage
  • Lymphedema
