Wound Care OC

Chronic and non-healing wounds can be detrimental to your overall health. Without adequate care and proper medical attention, there is a higher risk of getting infection and serious complications.

Some common types of wounds are burns, diabetic wounds, ulcers and bed sores, postsurgical wounds, and etc. Wounds normally heal by themselves. In some cases, it may take longer for wounds to heal. You may have non-healing or chronic wounds if they do not heal within 2 weeks or they have not healed completely within 6 weeks.

Certain conditions may result in non-healing wounds are diabetes, nerve damage, substance overuse, compromised immunity, prolonged bed rest, poor blood circulation.

*Disclaimer* We are not urgent care and appointments for treating wounds may take up to 2 days to be scheduled.

Why Wound Care Is Important?

Non-healing wounds can be intolerable and painful. Poorly managed wounds can lead to serious health issues including infection, excessive pain, amputation, and illness. Hence, it is important to diagnose the extent of your wound and develop a treatment plan that is individualized and effective for you.

Diagnosis

Our collaborative team will perform a thorough examination of your wound, assess the blood flow in the area around the wound and your unique condition to create a treatment plan that fits your medical demands. In many cases, the physicians may order tests to fully evaluate your conditions.

What can we offer you?

Conditions We Treat

Our wound care management covers the following conditions:

Diabetic Ulcers

A diabetic ulcer is a wound that often occurs on the foot, heel or toes of diabetics. For diabetics, wound healing progresses less slowly because high blood sugar hinders the ability of the immune system to function effectively. Additionally, poor blood circulation also contributes to the main cause of diabetic ulcers. The issue can become detrimental and lead to serious medical complications if it is left unattended.

Post-Surgical Wounds

A surgical wound is the result of cut or incision or drainage during a surgery. Its size may vary depending on the procedures and where they are conducted. Post-operative wound infections are often seen after surgery. Common signs include redness around a surgical wound for days following the procedure, prolonged or increased pain around the wound, pus/ fluid collection, foul smells around the surgical site, and/ or high body temperature.

Arterial Ulcers

An arterial ulcer is a round-shaped wound caused by the result of damages to the arteries due to lack of blood flow to the tissues. It is a common complication seen on the lower extremities such as legs or feet. Arterial ulcers, unlike other wounds, often take months to heal. Common symptoms are discolored sores, leg pains at night, tight skin.

Pressure Ulcers/ Decubitus Ulcers (Bedsores)

A pressure ulcer is a wound resulting from prolonged sitting or lying in one position, which over the time causes damages to the skin. Bedsores are often seen on skin that covers bony areas of the body, such as the heels, ankles, hips and tailbone. Some specific symptoms are unusual swelling and changing in skin colors, the onset of pus draining, and/or abnormal temperature felt in the affected skin area. The wounds may be very painful and intolerable to the patients. Untreated pressure ulcers may lead to bone and skin infection, cancer, and sepsis.

Venous Stasis Ulcers

A venous stasis ulcer is a leg ulcer caused by the damage of valves controlling the blood pressure inside the body veins. When these valves work improperly, they cause significant swelling and an ulcer develops. A venous stasis ulcer is often painful and causes a tremendous discomfort to the patient. Common symptoms are painful swelling on the leg or skin color changes. Venous stasis ulcers are often seen in the lower leg between the ankle and the knee.

Burns

A burn is an injury resulting from either thermal, electrical, radiation, or chemical energy. Depending on the extent of severity and the depth of skin penetration, burns are classified to different categories such as first-degree, second-degree, or third-degree burns. A severe burn requires adequate medical treatment to avoid long-term injury. Improper treated burns increase the chances of infection and loss of physical abilities.
