Specialized Wound Care
What is specialized wound care?
Once a treatment plan has been initiated, you will visit the Center on a weekly basis for specialized treatments and documentation of the progress of your healing. You will also be fully instructed on how to do your own wound care at home between visits, as well as how to protect your wound from further injury. It is very important to remember that you are the most important part of your healing process. Keeping appointments and following directions are critical to attaining a positive healing outcome.
The Center employs the most technologically advanced wound care therapy, including debridement, topical wound therapy, growth-factor therapy, tissue therapy, dressing selection, special shoes, and patient education. When wounds persist, a specialized and comprehensive approach is required for healing.
Ask your doctor about visiting St. Luke’s Advanced Wound Care & Hyperbaric Center if:
- You have a wound that hasn’t healed in 30 days
- You have a sore with increasing pain, redness or swelling, foul odor, or a change in color
- You have a surgical wound that has become infected
