Personalized, Integrated Wound Care
Challenging wounds can be the result of surgery, reduced mobility, burns or radiation therapy. They can also affect patients with diabetes, peripheral artery disease or vascular disease. When wounds don’t improve after four weeks or remain unhealed after eight weeks, they require special medical attention. Redeemer provides restorative, personalized care for both short-term wound care and for recurring problems.
There are a variety of wounds that can become chronic, including:
- Venous stasis, diabetic or arterial ulcers
- Non-healing surgical wounds
- Malignant wounds
- Skin tears
- Radiation skin reactions
- Autoimmune ulcers
How Redeemer Treats Chronic Wounds
Our surgeons and certified nurses, along with your primary care physician, co-create a wound care program based on your needs. Your first meeting is always with a doctor specifically trained in evaluating non-healing wounds. He or she may recommend blood work, wound cultures or radiology studies. Most tests can be completed through Redeemer Hospital and our staff can assist you in making the arrangements.
After analyzing the test results, our team creates a personalized wound care program that may include:
- Advanced dressings and topical ointments
- Steps to control infection
- Hyperbaric oxygen therapy to support healing
- Family-oriented nutrition, lifestyle and hygiene tips
- Edema control to relieve painful swelling
- Removal of unhealthy tissue
- Skin grafting/substitution to promote healthy tissue growth
- Surgery for more challenging cases
