Wound Therapy at WTMF
Experienced Care from Vascular Specialists in Fremont
Our vascular experts provide advanced wound care for our patients with
complex or chronic wounds. This includes treatment for:
Chronic venous disease – Chronic venous diseases can impact the veins in the legs. Our
experienced vascular experts at Washington Township Medical Foundation
offer therapy-based solutions. Treatment may include intermittent pneumatic
compression, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and—in some cases—venous
surgery or skin grafting.
Venous leg ulcer – Leg ulcers are open sores / wounds that seem to refuse to heal. Symptoms
of venous leg ulcers include itching, leg swelling, and pain. These ulcers
are often caused by venous insufficiency, which can cause blood flow to
slow down and affect leg veins.
Diabetic foot ulcer – This condition is an open wound or sore. About 15% of diabetes
patients experience this condition, and of this number, 6% will eventually
be hospitalized due to complications related to the wound or infections.
Post-operation – It is important to prevent infections at surgical sites. Our team
provides care for post-surgical wounds.
When Is a Wound Considered Chronic?
Any type of wound, sore, ulcer, or cut that does not heal in approximately
30 days is considered chronic. This could also be evidence that you have
a peripheral vascular disease or another pre-existing medical condition
that is affecting your body’s natural healing process and blood
flow. You need specialized treatment from wound care experts. Our vascular
specialists at Washington Township Medical Foundation can help.
