DEALING WITH PROBLEM WOUNDS
At any given time, almost five million Americans suffer from chronic, nonhealing wounds. There are many different types of wounds. Some are associated with the complications from diabetes and other related vascular disorders. Other types include pressure sores and traumatic wounds. It can be very frustrating and time consuming to heal these wounds. At the great River Wound and Hyperbaric Clinic, we use sophisticated approaches to wound healing and remain current in new scientific advances in wound care.
YOUR WOUND TREATMENT PROGRAM
On referral to the clinic, you will undergo a thorough diagnostic examination to identify the type of wound you have and the underlying problems causing the wound. After this determination, we will begin a program specifically tailored to your needs and based on the most-effective treatment options. A multispecialty approach will be used to provide the maximum benefit to your wound. We offer sophisticated wound care and hyperbaric oxygen services. When a treatment plan has begun, you will visit the clinic regularly for wound care. You will be instructed on hoe to administer your own wound care at home between visits and how to protect your wound from further injury. It is very important to remember that you are the most important part of your healing process. Keeping appointments and following directions are critical to attaining a positive healing outcome. If you have any questions regarding your therapy, please talk to one of our staff. To reach the clinic call the Center for Rehabilitation at (319) 768-4100
