Do you or a loved one have a chronic wound? A chronic wound does not heal in an orderly set of stages and/or in a predictable amount of time the way most wounds do. Wounds that do not heal within one month are often considered chronic.
At the DRH Wound Center, you’ll receive the right treatment to heal your wound. Your wound care physician may prescribe some of these therapies:
- Bio-engineered tissue substitutes
- Debridement (removal of dead or damaged tissue)
- Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
- Platelet growth technologies
- Specially chosen dressings and wraps
- Wound Vacs
If you or your loved one has an open area you are uncomfortable with, call the DRH Wound Center as soon as possible. Early treatment can help prevent infection, amputation and other more invasive treatments. No Physician Referral Needed!
Programs & Services
We provide care and support for patients living with stomas as well as those considering ostomy surgery. Our nurses, certified in ostomy and wound care, work with adults anticipating the creation of an ileostomy or colostomy. Our team provides post-operative education and care to patients who have recently undergone surgery. We also see patients living with stomas who need additional assistance and/or are interested in updates to ostomy management systems.
We believe that all people who undergo ostomy surgery should have access to a specialized ostomy nurse to help with the adaptation and adjustments that are necessary following surgery.
