WHAT IS WOUND CARE?

If you or a loved one has a wound that does not heal, ask your doctor for a referral to our wound clinic at Lake District Hospital. We will develop a treatment plan unique to each patient’s needs to get the wound healed. We have experts in accelerated wound healing and extensive management of chronic wounds in diabetics. All of our treatment options are constantly evaluated to make certain that all of our patients receive the best possible care.

Generally, wound healing is an orderly process with a predictable time course. When wounds do not follow this pattern, underlying issues, such as infection, reduced blood supply to the affected area or a combination or other factor, need to be resolved to achieve healing.
