WHMC-Foot Undergoing Treatment



 

 

 

 

 


Patients undergo a thorough diagnostic examination to identify the type of wound they have and the underlying problems causing the wound.  A program specifically tailored to the patients' needs is then initiated, based upon the most effective treatment options.  Treatment may include: 

  • Pain management
  • Infectious disease management
  • Debridement
  • Vascular evaluation
  • Laboratory evaluation
  • Radiology
  • Nuclear medicine
  • Diabetic education
  • Nutritional management
  • Hyperbaric medicine
  • Physical therapy

Once a custom treatment plan has been designed, the patient visits the Wound and Hyperbaric Medicine Center on a regular basis for wound care.  Instruction is given on how to administer wound care at home between visits, as well as how to protect the wound from further complication.  The patient is the most important part of the healing process.  It is critical that appointments are kept and instructions followed to attain a positive healing outcome.
