Patient Information

In the very near future, we will have information, regarding the different types of wounds, that will be useful for our patients and their families. We will touch on several important topics that relate to wound healing:

  • Basic skin anatomy and physiology
  • Causes of wounds
  • Why some wounds will not heal in a timely fashion and become "chronic"?
  • Role of nutrition in wound healing
  • Pressure reduction surfaces (bed and wheelchair)
  • Diabetes and wound healing
  • Treatment alternatives in wound care
  • Different types of dressings used in the treatment of wounds
