Wound Care

You Are the Magic Ingredient in Our Care.

To refer a patient to our Wound Care clinic or for more information about our services, please call 504.835.4919.

If you are a referring physician, your patient remains in your care. You will receive frequent updates, remaining an active member of the wound care management team. Upon healing, your patient is discharged back to you.

Individualized patient-focused care for wound healing.

As a wound center, we treat all wounds, but specialize in non-healing wounds. Our center is staffed by clinicians with advanced training in wound care. We use an aggressive approach that utilizes traditional and advanced therapies to aid and accelerate the healing process. We aim for faster healing times, longer-lasting results, decreased amputation rates, and increased patient mobility.

Non-healing, chronic wounds can have serious health consequences and may adversely affect overall health as the wound becomes vulnerable to germs, bacteria, and infection. They may never fully heal from standard therapies because of poor blood supply and a lack of oxygen and nutrients. Non-healing wounds must be treated by a wound care expert to avoid infection.

Wound care services we offer

We offer specialized care for patients with serious wounds, including hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy delivered by our physicians, nurse practitioners, and other medical staff members. To determine the best treatment plan for our patients, we thoroughly evaluate their wound and current health status.

Our wound care specialists develop an individualized treatment plan using evidence-based therapies that are highly effective in facilitating the healing process, including:

  • Debridement
  • Offloading
  • Specialty dressings and wraps
  • Compression therapy
  • Topical medications
  • When to call the Wound Center
  • Cellular and/or tissue-based products (skin substitutes)

Any patient who has a wound that has not responded to conventional therapy should be referred to the wound center for further evaluation.

Our wound center treats all wounds associated with, but not limited to:

  • Pressure injuries/ulcer
  • Venous ulcer
  • Diabetic foot ulcer
  • Arterial ulcer
  • Non-healing, post-surgical wound
  • Arterial/ischemic ulcer
