The Wound & Edema Center uses specialized dressings that are appropriate for your type of wound or ulcer. There are many types available and all of them are for specific conditions within your ulcer. If your wound is infected and draining, there are dressings that are specific to combat the infection and absorb the drainage allowing your ulcer to heal. If the wound is dry, there is a dressing to keep it moist.
New dressings and treatments arrive on the market every day. It is our responsibility in the wound clinic to be informed about new treatments so potentially they may be incorporated into our treatment plans. Your doctor’s office simply may not have time to keep up with all the specialties – and that’s where we come in.
