Our Treatment Approach
Every year between four and five million Americans like you suffer from chronic non-healing wounds. Many of these wounds are caused by diabetes, poor circulation and other conditions that can keep you from enjoying the things you like doing. Rest assured, the clinicians at Southern California Wound Healing Center are here to help heal your wound - it's what we do best.
Remember that you are an integral part of the wound healing process. By keeping your appointments and by sticking to the program, we can both heal your wound together.
The course of treatment depends on what type of wound you have. During your first visit, our staff of physicians and nurses will evaluate your wound's status & review your medical history. You may also need special non-invasive tests that give us information about blood flow and oxygen flow in the wound area. This will then help to determine what course of treatment you will need.
Course of treatment may include:
- Vascular testing
- Surgical intervention
- Diabetes education
- Nutritional services
Our wound care team consists of multi-specialty physicians, registered nurses, licensed vocational nurses, certified medical assistants and certified hyperbaric technicians.
