Our comprehensive outpatient program allows you to seek treatment when it's convenient.
Most of us take our body's ability to heal for granted. Only when faced with a wound that does not heal, do we realize how much it affects every aspect of our life. A wound that does not respond to normal medical care within 30 days is considered a problem or chronic wound. Often, people feel as though there is no hope for this type of condition.
At Methodist South Hospital, we are in the business of healing, and this is especially true at our Comprehensive Wound Healing Center. Through our comprehensive treatment programs, administered by physicians specially trained in caring for wounds, we can help you return to a normal, active lifestyle.
Our Comprehensive Outpatient Program
We work in partnership with your primary physician to understand your health history and keep him/her updated with your progress. Wound healing is a team approach that is focused on your individual needs. Upon your initial visit, you will undergo a thorough diagnostic examination to identify the type of wound and the underlying problem causing it. Then a treatment program will be specifically tailored to your needs utilizing our advanced treatment options. Your treatment may include:
- Infectious disease management
- Physical therapy
- Vascular evaluation
- Laboratory evaluation
- Nutritional management
- Pain management
- Diabetes management and education
- Nuclear medicine
- Radiology services
The treatment program involves regular visits to the Comprehensive Wound Healing Center to ensure proper healing. We can also develop a home care program to help you properly care for your wound between visits to our center. We involve you in your plan of care and instruct you in ways to help with the healing process, including dressing changes and diet and lifestyle modifications. Don't let your wound stop you from doing the things you love. If you or a loved one has a wound that won't heal, ask your doctor about the services at Methodist South's Comprehensive Wound Healing Center.
