Wound Care

Live an active, independent life.
Let us help you with chronic, un-healing wounds.

Holy Family Memorial’s wound care experts are dedicated to the successful treatment and prevention of chronic, non-healing wounds. We are able to help treat and manage:

  • Diabetic neuropathic ulcers—the result of trauma or injury to the foot that has gone unnoticed due to a loss of sensation in the feet caused by diabetes
  • Venous stasis ulcers—develop when people have reduced blood flow in their legs, which leads to skin breakdown and ulcers in the affected area
  • Pressure sores and ulcers—skin injuries caused by unrelieved pressure that usually develop on the spine, elbows, ankles or heels, where pressure from a bed or wheelchair is the highest
  • Arterial ulcers—caused by poor circulation that leads to a lack of oxygen and nutrients to parts of the body, which results in skin breakdown and ulcer formation
  • Complex surgical wounds – these are wounds that need advance types of treatment, for example, treatment utilizing a wound vacuum procedure or skin substitute.
  • Traumatic wounds – ranging anywhere from a simple skin tear, laceration or puncture wound, these types of wounds often have damage to both the skin and underlying tissue. Some may require plastic surgery consult.
  • Vasculitic wounds – these are often chronic wounds which do not respond to appropriate vascular intervention and standard local wound care. Systemic treatment is many times also needed in addition to topical wound care. A multidisciplinary approach is needed.
  • Lower leg wounds – these wounds can often take longer to heal because of poor circulation issues. This can create swelling in the legs and added skin infections.
  • Foot ulcers – wounds on the foot occur when areas of skin break down and tissue beneath the skin can be seen. This often occurs in people with diabetes whose skin has difficulty healing.
  • Other services include management of colostomies, ileostomies and urinary ostomies
