Wound Care

What are Wounds?

Though all surgeons close wounds, there are times when the special reconstructive surgery skills are needed. Their expertise can improve healing and reduce scaring when a wound is large, jagged or cannot be covered with the skin currently at the site. While basic suturing techniques continue to be essential, surgeons today have a wide range of materials available, including: Absorbable sutures, Adhesives, Synthetic sutures, and Tapes.

What to expect during the Wound Care procedure?

We understand that severe wounds can have a profound impact on your life and can affect physical movement, lifestyle, emotional well-being, and overall health. The goal is to provide effective solutions for all types of serious and complicated wounds.

  • Surgery: including tissue transfer, skin grafts, and microsurgery
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy: Patients are immersed in 100 percent oxygen at an atmospheric pressure that is higher than normal. This increases the amount of oxygen in the blood and promotes quicker healing.
  • Bioengineered skin substitutes: Using cell-based tissue to protect the wound and increase healing
  • Specialized wound-specific dressings: Made of gels, collagen, foam, or various other substances used to help promote wound healing. This treatment method is often used with hyperbaric oxygen therapy and nutrition counseling.
  • Dietary and nutrition consultations: Studies show that wound healing takes longer in people who have a diet lacking in essential nutrients
