Depending on the severity of the problem, wound care specialists at the Excela Advanced Wound Center can use one or a combination of several treatments including:
• Aggressive wound debridement
Removes foreign matter and dead tissue to prevent infection and promote rapid healing.
• Bioengineered tissue products
Known as “skin substitutes,” these products are used to replace tissue that has been lost.
• Negative pressure wound therapy
A treatment option that can accelerate the healing process.
• Hyperbaric oxygen treatment
The most sophisticated system in the region that has resulted in outcomes called “miraculous.”
Regardless of the treatments selected, the advanced wound care team continues to work together, bringing their varied sets of skills and experience to address the problem and help the patient back to a normal, healthy life.
