Healing Should Be Easy
Most wounds heal easily within four weeks. However, chronic and complicated wounds may require specialized care. The Wound Care Program at Texas Health Southwest Fort Worth provides advanced therapies to care for wounds. Trained in wound care and hyperbaric medicine, the physicians on the medical staff and registered nurses navigate the complex process of wound healing by offering specialized intervention and treatment.
Healing Close to Home
A team of physicians on the medical staff, and other wound care professionals, will evaluate your needs and develop an individualized care plan to deliver quality clinical outcomes — all close to home. Advanced treatment options include:
- Hyperbaric oxygen treatment chambers
- Advanced wound dressings
- Wound debridement
- Compression therapy
- Bio-engineered skin grafting
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. Once the wound is healed, nurses and physicians on the medical staff work with the patient to develop a plan to help prevent a recurrence of the wound.
