Wound Care Q & A
What is wound care?
Wound care is the evaluation, management, and treatment of nonhealing wounds. The purpose of wound care is to stimulate healing and prevent infection. Many slow- or nonhealing wounds leave your deeper tissues vulnerable to infection and damage. Without proper healing, the wound can grow and fester. Sometimes, nonhealing wounds even lead to amputation. If you are unsure if you need to meet with a wound care specialist or if your primary care provider can help you with your wound care needs, we would be happy to see you and help determine if you need additional specialty services.
