Why Choose Us for Advanced Wound Care?
Types of Non-Healing Wounds We Treat
Wounds come in various forms, each requiring specific attention and expertise. Our team of dedicated Wound Care Specialists is trained to handle a wide range of non-healing wounds, including:
- Pressure Injuries - Also known as bedsores, pressure sores, or decubitus ulcers, these wounds cause when there is a pressure and/or shearing force on the skin. The people who are more prone to these chronic wounds are with limited mobility due to any medical illness or unable to walk, move all or part of their body to a different position.
- Diabetic Ulcers - Diabetic ulcers are a common and concerning complication of diabetes, particularly affecting the feet. Elevated blood sugar levels can lead to nerve damage (neuropathy) and poor circulation, making individuals with diabetes susceptible to foot ulcers. These ulcers often go unnoticed due to reduced sensation, leading to delayed treatment and complications. Our specialized care for diabetic ulcers focuses on comprehensive wound assessment, infection control, and advanced wound dressings.
- Venous/Vascular Ulcers - Venous ulcers, also known as vascular ulcers, develop due to poor blood circulation in the veins. When veins fail to efficiently return blood to the heart, it can pool in the legs, leading to increased pressure within the veins. Over time, this pressure can cause skin breakdown and the formation of venous ulcers. Our specialized treatments focus on improving circulation and addressing the underlying vascular issues to promote healing and prevent recurrence.
- Ischemic Wounds - Ischemic wounds occur when tissues do not receive an adequate supply of blood, leading to reduced oxygen and nutrient delivery. Common causes include arterial blockages, vascular diseases, or blood clots. These wounds often manifest as painful, slow-healing ulcers and require targeted interventions to improve blood flow and facilitate tissue regeneration.
- Radiation Wounds or Ulcers - Radiation wounds or ulcers are a potential side effect of radiation therapy, commonly used to treat cancer. Radiation damages not only cancer cells but also healthy tissues in the treatment area. Over time, this damage can result in non-healing wounds or ulcers. Our team has experience in managing radiation wounds, employing specialized techniques to support tissue healing and alleviate discomfort associated with these ulcers.
Each type of wound necessitates a tailored approach and specific treatment methods. Our experienced specialists can assess your condition and recommend the most suitable course of action.
