Wound Education & Prevention
The primary goals of wound care are to prevent infection, prevent further skin breakdown, relieve pain, and promote wound closure. Wounds heal in a sequential and overlapping process in which hemostasis, inflammation, repair, and remodeling or scar formation occur. The length of these wound-healing phases differs in each patient and is affected by factors such as advanced age, obesity, and a history of smoking or diabetes.

Conditions We Treat
Diabetes patients commonly suffer from sores and ulcers. Ulcers are open sores/wounds on the skin that don't heal normally. Ulcers are most likely to occur in the feet and/or legs of a person with diabetes, but they can also form in other areas, like the hands or in folds of skin on the stomach.
Failed Or Compromised Skin Grafts
Failing or compromised skin or muscle grafts or flaps are caused by movement which dissociates any new blood vessel growth into the graft and depriving it of oxygen and nutrients. This causes fluid to collect between the graft and the graft site bed and further separating the graft from the bed.
Skin Tears Or Lacerations
A skin tear or laceration is a wound that is caused by the tearing of the soft tissue of the body. This results in a rough, jagged wound that may contain traces of debris from the object that caused the laceration. Simple tears or lacerations affect the top layers of skin, while complex tears or lacerations go beneath the skin through the fat layer or to the muscle layer and may need emergency care.
Trauma injuries are wounds sustained during a traumatic event, such as a car accident or fall from a height. These wounds can include open wounds, broken or shattered bones, and internal damage to soft tissue and organs. Traumatic wounds are treated in a trauma center by a trauma surgeon.
Venous insufficiency occurs when your leg veins don't allow blood to flow back up to your heart. Normally, the valves in your veins make sure that blood flows toward your heart. But when these valves don't work well, blood can also flow backwards. This can cause blood to collect (pool) in your legs.
Chronic & Non-Healing Wounds
A non-healing wound is a wound that doesn’t heal within five to eight weeks, even though you’ve been following your provider’s instructions to take care of it. This can be very serious, because it can become infected and lead to an illness or even the loss of a limb. A non-healing wound sometimes is called a chronic wound. There are many different types of non-healing wounds, but the most common is an ulcer.
