Wound care

Wound care involves medical interventions to heal a wound after injury. Specialized treatment is provided for wounds that are nonhealing or refuse to heal on their own. A vital aspect of treatment includes learning how to properly dress and care for a wound.

Wound care specialists in North Texas

If you have a chronic, non-healing or critical wound, there are team members throughout the Medical City Healthcare network who are specialized in treating your needs.

To aid in your healing, you will work with experienced professionals who help patients with conditions that have a high risk of wound complications, including chronic hemodialysis, diabetes and severe peripheral vascular disease.

Chronic wound causes

We expect our bodies to heal quickly and routinely, but, in reality, healing is a very complicated process. Without proper treatment, chronic wounds can become critically infected or gangrenous and may require amputation. These difficult-to-heal wounds can result from various causes:

  • Arterial or venous ulcers
  • Chemical burns
  • Circulatory conditions
  • Collagen vascular disease
  • Poor diabetes management
  • Heart failure
  • Lymphedema
  • Peripheral vascular disease
  • Pressure sores
  • Surgical site breakdown
  • Spinal injury
  • Traumatic injury

Wound treatments and therapies

At Medical City Healthcare, we provide a wide range of solutions for patients with critical wounds, including:

  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
  • Advanced wound dressings
  • Compression therapy
  • Bioengineered skin substitutes
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Plastic surgery
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation
  • Protective footwear
  • Negative pressure wound therapy
  • Incision and drainage
  • Ultrasonic mist therapy (low energy, low intensity ultrasound delivered through a saline mist to the wound bed)
