Description

If you suffer from a wound that will not heal, you are not alone. Each year, millions of people suffer from chronic wounds that prevent them from doing the things they love to do. The Wound Center at Saint Joseph Health can help you heal once and for all and get back to the things you enjoy. From assessment and treatment to follow-up, our caring team of specialists will be with you every step of the way.

If a chronic wound or sore is affecting your quality of life, know that help is available at the Wound Center.

A wound or sore that has not begun to significantly heal within four weeks, or healed entirely in eight weeks, should be treated by specialists. At Saint Joseph Health, we consult and treat all levels and kinds of wound disease, including radiation tissue damage, trauma wounds, fistulas, skin irritations, ostomies, and diabetic, arterial and pressure ulcers.

Our multidisciplinary team of specialists uses an integrated approach to the treatment and follow-up of all chronic wounds, and provides the most advanced and comprehensive wound-management services.

Our experts use state-of-the-art techniques to promote healing, including:

  • topical dressings
  • vacuum-assisted closure
  • compression therapy
  • electrical stimulation
  • bilaminate skin grafts

Receiving Care

To receive care at the Wound Center, all you need is a referral or prescription from your physician. Self-referrals are accepted, but you should first check with your insurance carrier to verify that treatment at the Center is covered under your plan.
