Technologically Advanced Techniques and Services
For most people, all it takes to heal a wound is antibiotic ointment and an adhesive bandage. However, if your wound isn't healing as it should, the wound care and hyperbaric medicine program* at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Allen may offer options for your care. Medical staff physicians practicing at the Wound Care Program provide care and education for patients with chronic and non-healing wounds.
According to the American Academy of Wound Management, non-healing wounds are often the result of poor blood flow to the site of the injury, which could be the result of any number of health problems such as diabetes or poor circulation. Medical staff physicians practicing wound care and hyperbaric medicine have experience working with wounds that have resisted healing after months and sometimes years of traditional care.
Treatment Options Providing Relief and Hope
Physicians on the medical staff assess the severity of the wound and evaluate the patient to develop an individualized treatment plan. Treatment options available through the wound care and hyperbaric medicine program include:
- Wound dressings
- Wound debridement
- Compression therapy
- Bio-engineered skin grafting
- Edema management
- Non-invasive vascular assessment
Patients and their caregivers are given detailed instructions on how to care for the wound at home and how to protect the wound from further injury. Nurses and physicians on the medical staff work with the patient to develop a plan to help prevent a recurrence of the wound.
The physician's treatment plan will be supported by a team of health care professionals who are trained in chronic wound care management. Health care professionals are also available to assist patients with supplies and services needed to heal their wounds.
