Amputation Prevention and Wound Care in Denver
Advanced Wound Healing Services
If you or a loved one has a wound or an ulcer that has not started to heal within a month or has not healed entirely in two months, you may have what is referred to as a “chronic” or “non-healing” wound.
There are many factors that can cause a wound to become chronic and there are many types of wounds. Some wounds are associated with complications from diabetes or poor circulation. Other types result from pressure ulcers and trauma. Chronic, non-healing wounds can have serious health consequences and may adversely affect your quality of life.
What is a Chronic Wound?
A wound that fails to respond to treatment after four weeks or has not healed entirely in two months is considered to be a chronic wound. Often complicated by underlying conditions such as diabetes, circulation problems or previous cancer treatment, the simplest of wounds can turn into a significant problem because the body’s normal healing process is affected. Other types of chronic wounds result from pressure ulcers, trauma or infection. Chronic, non-healing wounds can have serious health consequences and may adversely affect your quality of life.
Comprehensive Wound Care
Our comprehensive wound center provides care to those suffering from chronic wounds in a way no other provider can. Some wounds require advanced dressings or extensive treatments that are difficult to provide in a private office setting. And complex wounds may require multiple additional therapies or experienced wound nurses to provide specialized care. Before comprehensive wound centers, a patient with a chronic wound was shuffled from one healthcare provider to another in order to receive the necessary, specialized care. Now, all of your wound management is in one place including:
- Diabetic foot management
- Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
- Compression therapy
- Wound care education
- Off-loading (taking pressure off the wound)
- Specialty dressings that promote healing and limit the potential for infection
Our center is staffed by a team of experienced wound care specialists who will customize the most effective treatment plan to stimulate healing, returning you to your life as quickly as possible.
