What is Wound Care?
The primary goal of our wound care protocol is to accelerate wound healing. By addressing the underlying etiology, achieving this goal helps to avoid further issues like infection, amputation, co-morbidity exacerbation, and even re-ulcerations. Non-healing wounds can worsen, catch an infection, and eventually expose deep tissue structures in limbs, necessitating amputation. Chronic wounds are commonly caused by conditions like diabetes, venous stasis, radiation, or paralysis.
The quality of life for patients who have chronic wounds is still negatively impacted by the current standard of care’s high rate of relapse. When compared to autologous skin grafts, cellular and tissue-based products have a number of advantages that can help patients’ chronic wounds heal more quickly. Closure of chronic wounds before they become life-threatening is possible through quick, aggressive action. Amputations can be avoided thanks to our efficient wound care protocols.
