At The Wound Care Center™, we treat a variety of wounds, including those resulting from these conditions:
- Venous Stasis
- Collagen Vascular Disease
- Pressure (e.g., bed sores)
As a patient, you’ll first receive a complete evaluation of your wound, your general health, and medical history. Non-invasive tests may also be required to assess the blood flow to the wound.
We then develop a treatment plan individualized to your needs, which includes detailed instructions on caring for the wound at home, changing dressings, and protecting the wound from further injury. We also provide nutritional recommendations to promote healing.
We work closely with you the entire time you are a patient with Nyack Hospital. You’ll make regular visits to The Wound Care Center™ to receive treatments and have us evaluate your progress. Healing success increases significantly when our patients keep appointments follow directions carefully, and monitor their progress between visits.
We will keep your primary care physician updated on your treatments and progress. Please continue to see your primary care physician for routine medical care while a patient of The Wound Care Center™.
