Wound Treatments

Sometimes, wound treatment just means good wound care.  However, most times, it means more.  It is important to treat the cause of the wound, not just the wound itself.  Our experts provide treatment for many of the underlying causes of delayed healing including pressure reduction, deformity correction, or the treatment of swelling, and partner with many local specialists in order to treat underlying problems like circulation or vein issues.  Below is a list of the most common causes of delayed wound healing.

PRESSURE:

When wounds are caused by pressure, it is important to find ways to decrease the pressure so the wound can heal.

INFECTION:

It is important to rule out any infection, including skin and bone to get wounds healed.

CIRCULATION:

In order for a wound to heal fast, it needs good blood flow.

SWELLING:

If your leg is swollen, it is important to treat the swelling so the wound can heal.
