For people who have wounds that won't heal because of diabetes or other health conditions, life can lose its enjoyment because of pain, fear and reduced ability to get around. Effective treatments can help, and that's what the SwedishAmerican Wound Care Clinic is all about. We're dedicated to providing quality care to patients with chronic non-healing wounds.
Our team of wound care specialists includes vascular surgeons, general surgeons, podiatric surgeons, registered nurses, advanced practice nurses, therapists and other medical professionals. We use the latest, most advanced treatments to help wounds heal so that you can feel better and get back to enjoying life. Using a team approach, we'll work with you to develop an effective treatment plan.
Some of our patients benefit from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, which involves breathing 100 percent oxygen inside a pressurized chamber. The treatment quickly delivers high concentrations of oxygen to the bloodstream, assists in the healing process of wounds and is effective in fighting certain types of infections. It also stimulates the growth of new blood vessels and improves circulation.
A treatment profile is administered daily, and the number of treatments depends on your diagnosis.
An initial consultation and examination will be performed, and directions, treatment expectations and other details will be provided prior to your first visit.
Making an appointment is the first step to getting better. Ask your doctor to refer you to us. Our number is (815) 489-4891.
