specialized care for non-healing wounds
A comprehensive approach
Since non-healing wounds rarely result from a single cause, we treat the whole person, not just the wound.
Our team of experienced wound care specialists will assess your symptoms, determine the underlying cause of your non-healing wound and customize the most effective treatment plan to stimulate healing.
Patient treatment plans are designed to complement the care your own physician provides, ensuring that your health care team is always working together to provide the treatment that’s right for you. Non-healing wounds can have serious health consequences and may adversely affect your quality of life. If you have a wound or an ulcer that is not healing, or any wound that is of concern, ask your physician for a referral to the wound center or contact us directly for an appointment.
Wound Care at NTMC currently focuses on non-healing wounds of the lower extremities such as diabetic foot ulcers.
We utilize best clinical practices that begin with a thorough patient evaluation and diagnostic testing to determine wound etiology. An individualized care plan is then developed using evidence based therapies that are highly effective in facilitating the healing process and may include:
• Surgical debridement
• Vacuum-assisted closure
• Specialty dressings and wraps
• Cellular and/or tissue-based products (skin substitutes)
• Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy
• Compression therapy
• Surgical interventions, when indicated
Even the most difficult wounds that have not responded to other treatments may see significant improvement at our center.
Physicians may refer their patients by calling the center at (940) 612-8490. Associates are available to address referring physicians’ needs and assist in coordinating patient appointments.
