Wound care clinic opens at St. Luke's The Woodlands Hospital
St. Luke's The Woodlands Hospital recently opened a wound care clinic, the first outpatient hospital-based one in the South Montgomery County and North Harris County areas.
According to a press release, the clinic will treat numerous injuries and wounds, including diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, venous leg ulcers, arterial ulcers, neuropathic ulcers, surgical and trauma wounds and other types of non-healing wounds.
The clinic, consisting of board-certified specialists, will use technologically advanced hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber treatment, which helps the healing process of wounds by delivering high-pressure oxygen to diseased or damaged tissues caused by diabetes, poor circulation, necrotizing infections or radiation tissue damage.
The clinic will also use advanced treatments to reduce pain and speed up the healing process of wounds. These treatments will include wound debridement, skin substitutes and negative-pressure wound dressings.
"Chronic wounds are a large and growing condition that afflicts approximately 6.5 million Americans," Dr. Caroline Fife, the clinic's medical director, said in the press release. "With the opening of St. Luke's The Woodlands Hospital's Wound Care Clinic on the hospital campus, patients with chronic wound conditions now have access to advanced wound healing treatment conveniently located within their community."
