- [Dr. Lauber] Wound Care Center is
a specialized clinic that we have set up
for helping people with chronic wounds
that are having difficulty healing.
We have a lot of patients with diabetes
and extensive medical problems that make
it difficult for them to heal,
wounds that develop either from trauma or
from pressure sores.
- [Megan] You may suspect that you have a
non-healing wound if it's not starting
to show signs of healing within two weeks.
- Some reasons that a wound would not heal
would be pressure that's being applied
that isn't being adequately padded,
circulation issues, either arterial
or venous, diabetes-related complications
such as neuropathy, circulation,
pressure sores all tie in with that.
We try to do as much as we possibly can to
improve the root causes.
Sometimes we actually use treatments that
stimulate growth and healing as well.
- We have several options
in the clinic for treating wounds.
We do offer bedside debridements
in the office.
We can do negative pressure therapies,
compression and we offer offloading cast.
We like to think of the Wound Care Center
as a team approach to your overall health.
So, we work really closely with your
primary A care provider,
and we can also help set up with home
health and refer you to other
providers as needed.
