Many chronic wounds can be healed with conventional dressings and good wound care technique. Complex wounds may require specialty dressings, growth factors, or bio-engineered tissue products. Once you are admitted our trained staff will evaluate your wound and design a treatment plan for you. As your wound heals, our team will continuously reevaluate your care plan and make adjustments to achieve the best results.
Debridement is the removal of dead tissue From a wound. The physicians at the Wound Care Center - Harlan will debride your wounds as necessary, to allow healthy tissue to grow. There are several methods of debridement available at our Center, and our physicians and clinicians will provide you with the most effective therapy for your condition.
Venous insufficiency is one of the main causes of chronic wounds. This chronic condition causes painful swelling of the legs and makes it very difficult for wounds of the legs and feet to heal. Compression therapy is a method of wrapping the legs in several layers of dressings to compress the legs and decrease the swelling. Once the swelling is decreased, oxygenated blood can reach the wound more easily and wounds have a greater chance of healing. There are several different compression Therapy methods and our qualified staff will work to provide the best therapy for you.
