Your wound care physician and care team will determine the appropriate therapies for you and recommend a course of treatment. Some of the treatment options available include:
About this Treatment
- Bio-Engineered Tissue Substitutes: Laboratory made materials used to reduce the build up of bacteria while reducing pain and maintaining proper moisture balance while covering open wounds.
- Debridement: Surgical removal of dead (necrotic) skin.
- Dressings and Wraps: Used by physicians to promote healing. Examples include compression stockings, products designed for wound odor control, and materials that support tissue growth.
- Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
- Negative Pressure Wound Therapy: Sub-atmospheric pressure applied to promote healing. Negative pressure therapy protects the wound environment while promoting oxygen flow, and removes fluids and infectious materials.
- Transcutaneous Oxygen Monitoring (TCPO2): A diagnostic tool designed to measure the amount of oxygen in the wound tissue and site. TCPO2 monitoring might also predict if hyperbaric oxygen treatment could stimulate wound healing.
