Treatment Approaches

Wound care begins with a comprehensive evaluation and development of an individualized care plan. Each patient receives a custom wound care regimen, which may include the following treatment approaches:

  • Sharp debridement
  • Specialty dressings and topical applications
  • Multi-layer compression wraps
  • Custom compression hose fitting
  • Wound V.A.C. therapy
  • Off-loading devices
  • Off-loading of pressure points

Wound Care nurse practitioners will work closely with your medical team to provide the most effective and efficient treatment for your wound(s). Our team also evaluates the need for coordinating treatment of underlying medical issues. Home nursing care and supply orders are coordinated as needed.
