Wound Care Overview

Most wounds heal over time with proper care, but in some cases, the healing process slows down—leading to a chronic or non-healing wound. Factors like advanced age, poor circulation, diabetes, and other conditions can interfere with the healing process. Wounds that won’t heal may result in pain, fear, and limited mobility—and this will impair your day-to-day enjoyment of life.

Non-healing or chronic wounds can become a serious health risk, especially for older people and people who have additional health conditions. That’s why a coordinated effort to gauge and treat wounds is so important. We concentrate on treating non-healing wounds caused by:

  • Burns
  • Diabetes
  • Kidney disease
  • Osteomyelitis (bone infection)
  • Ostomy
  • Peripheral vascular disease
  • Pressure sores
  • Soft tissue radiation injury
  • Steroid dependence
  • Trauma
  • Venous insufficiency (problems with leg veins sending blood back to the heart)
  • Wounds of arterial, venous, or lymphatic origin

Our Approach to worry

Our wound care specialists perform a series of diagnostic tests to gauge you and your wound, that specialize in the various factors that impact wound healing. Additional tests could also be required to collect information on blood flow, tissue oxygenation, nutritional status, and therefore the presence of infection. We coordinate with other medical specialists to make a wound care treatment program to deal with any underlying problems you’ll have and identify the simplest treatments to assist your wound heal. The goal of treatment isn’t just to heal your wound but to stop a recurrence, maintain your mobility, and stop further complications.

Veda Wound Care offers a full range of medical and surgical options for non-healing wounds. Healing techniques include:

Bioengineered skin may be a treatment that uses skin substitutes created from biological ingredients in healthy skin.

Gait evaluation analyzes how you stand or walk to detect areas of pressure and potential ulceration.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) delivers oxygen to the wound by breathing one hundred pc oxygen during a special chamber, increasing blood flow to affected areas to heal your wounds faster.

Microsurgical free flap tissue transfer uses microsurgery to maneuver tissue from one location of the body to a different site.
Negative pressure wound therapy uses a vacuum-assisted closure dressing to get rid of fluid through suction, reduce the danger of infection, and improve blood flow.

Prosthetic devices improve mobility with a man-made limb in cases when an arm or other extremity is amputated or lost.

Skin grafting involves placing skin substitutes over a burn or non-healing wound to permanently replace missing skin or provide a short-lived wound cover.
