Wound Care / Infectious Disease
Chronic wounds such as diabetic ulcers, infections or severe inflammation, among others, require professional medical attention for proper treatment. Moreover, conditions such as diabetes and peripheral vascular disease compromise the integrity of the skin, which can make ulcer formations quite common.
Your attending physician works with a team of specialists to provide a comprehensive treatment plan for wound management. Advantages to this team approach include:
- Elimination of delays in obtaining care from several specialists
- Faster delivery of medical services
- Seamless coordination of care between physicians
- No duplication of services
- Cost efficiency
We have found that our patients are much happier when they are cared for by a team of physicians working together.
Our wound therapy program utilizes a variety of advanced techniques such as:
- Electrical Stimulation
One of the most important aspects of wound care is setting long-term goals and exercise plans for healthy living. Our team will work with you to develop a realistic plan for managing diabetes, eating healthy, controlling weight, lowering your blood pressure and cholesterol levels, eliminating bad habits and managing stress. This will not only help increase your physical fitness, but also may reduce the risk of future issues and improve your overall health.
