FAQ: Wound Care

What is wound care?
Wound care encompasses a range of medical treatments that help treat slow-healing and non-healing wounds. Your skin is your natural shield against germs, so wounds that don’t heal properly lead to skin weakening, breakdown, and infection. Wound healing helps restore your natural skin barrier and can help you avoid limb loss.

Many types of wounds may need wound care, including:

  • Diabetic ulcers: typically develop on the feet due to neuropathy and vascular issues
  • Radiation burns: skin damage following radiation therapy for cancer
  • Vascular wounds: usually on the lower leg, developing due to poor circulation
  • Pressure wounds: wounds developing atop a bony prominence
  • Surgical wounds: incision wounds following surgery

If you don’t see improvement in your wound within 30 days of treatment by your primary care, internal medicine, or surgeon, we suggest discussing with your physician about additional options for advanced wound care, such as those available at our clinic.

Wound care covers many treatments, ranging from more conservative strategies to highly advanced therapies and surgical interventions. Limb Preservation Center of East Tennessee offers the full spectrum of wound care solutions in one convenient place. Some of the most common treatment options are:

  • Topical gels, creams, or solutions applied to your wound
  • Wound dressings that help protect your wound
  • Wound debridement to remove infected or dead skin and boost your healing
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy to use 100% pure oxygen to prompt healing
  • Offloading with orthotics, shoes, or other methods to ease pressure on the wound
  • Negative pressure therapy to suction extra fluid out of the wound and help close it

Our team of expert providers base your wound healing therapy on the cause of the wound, its size or depth, its symptoms, and other factors specific to your situation. No matter what type of treatment approach you need, our team compassionately guides you through the process and gives you reliable, steady support.

Wound care isn’t just about healing; it’s about reclaiming your life. Limb Preservation Center of East Tennessee is here to help with all types of wounds, so don’t hesitate to call our office or request your first appointment online.

Traumatic wounds are a type of sudden or unplanned injury that can occur after accidents or due to any violence. These wounds include:

  • Abrasions
  • Lacerations
  • Skin tears
  • Bites
  • Burns
  • Penetrating trauma wounds

If a traumatic wound is not treated on time, it can cause severe damage to the soft tissues in the skin.
