Comprehensive wound care close to home.
At Reeves Regional Health, we treat all types of wounds, but specialize in those that are slow or difficult to heal.
Wounds that are hard-to-heal and/or non-healing may be a result of pressure, trauma or infection. Sometimes, the simplest of wounds can turn into a significant problem due to underlying conditions such as diabetes, circulation problems or previous radiation treatment.
Examples of patients who may require wound care include:
- Slow-to-heal or non-healing wounds
- Foot or leg ulcers or wounds
- Non-healing surgical wounds
- Non-healing skin grafts or surgical flaps
- Symptoms occurring on or around a point of radiation (such as pain, rectal or bladder bleeding)
- Bone infection, also called osteomyelitis
- Crush injuries
Since non-healing wounds rarely result from a single cause, we treat the whole person, not just the wound. Our team of experienced wound care specialists will assess your symptoms, determine the underlying cause of your non-healing wound and customize the most effective treatment plan to stimulate healing.
Advanced wound care may include:
- Diagnostic testing (can include vascular testing, blood tests, x-rays)
- Nutritional evaluation
- Infection control
- Specialized dressings
- Pressure-relieving devices
- Hyperbaric chamber
- Debridement (removal of dead or infected tissue)
- Patient education
Our treatment plans are designed to complement the care your own physician provides, ensuring that your health care team is always working together to provide the treatment that’s right for you.
Non-healing wounds can have serious health consequences and may adversely affect your quality of life. If you have a wound or an ulcer that is not healing, or any wound that is of concern, ask your physician for a referral to the wound center or contact us directly for an appointment.
