The Wound Program's care team extensively assesses your wound and overall health, looking thoroughly at issues that may have caused the wound or that may affect wound healing. An individualized treatment plan is then developed to stimulate healthy tissue growth. Our wound nurses support and educate patients and caregivers to continue wound care at home. In addition, the team may provide resources for lifestyle adjustments to help with wound healing.
Throughout the process, with your permission, we'll keep your primary doctor informed of your wound treatment program and your progress. Patients continue seeing their primary doctor for all other health care needs.
