Do you have a persisting wound that has not yet healed?
Your initial thought may be to “give it more time,” but for some wounds, time is of the essence to seek out proper care.
When searching for the top Carolinas wound care center, the choice is clear: EmergeOrtho’s Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Center. An outpatient clinic of North Carolina Specialty Hospital, our wound care center enables EmergeOrtho to offer dedicated, specialized care for problem wounds that have not responded to traditional treatment plans.
Our highly-skilled, specialty-trained doctors take the necessary time to provide each patient with vital education on how to care for their wounds and avoid future recurrences. Each comprehensive treatment plan is created to provide maximal healing in minimal time in an effort to allow the patient to return to normal activities as soon as possible.
The EmergeOrtho Wound Care Experience
The Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Center employs a team of health care providers who are experts in diagnosing and treating non-healing wounds, including:
- Diabetic foot ulcers
- Venous stasis ulcers
- Arterial insufficiency ulcers
- Non-healing surgical wounds
- Traumatic wounds
- Pressure ulcers
- Non-healing flaps and grafts
- Wounds resulting from past radiation therapy or injury
- Persistent wounds associated with bony infection
- Other non-healing wounds
During each clinic visit, we carefully examine our patients and their wounds. A thorough medical history and physical examination, including reviews of recent medical visits, pertinent lab tests or imaging studies, will be conducted. If necessary, tests will be ordered to fully evaluate the cause of the wound.
Once an accurate diagnosis has been made, our doctors thoroughly explain the next steps in the tailored treatment plan. If appropriate, you or a family member may be instructed on dressing changes, or at-home care will be requested to perform dressing changes at your home. With your permission, our doctors will communicate with your primary care physician so that he or she can stay updated on your progress.
