Wound Healing Center

The Jonesboro and Paragould Wound Healing Centers in Arkansas provide care to patients with chronic and complicated wounds and infectious diseases. Our wound and infectious disease doctors and specialists offer the most current and recommended treatments and tailor them to each patient’s specific needs.

At the Jonesboro and Paragould Wound Healing Center in Arkansas, our wound and infectious disease doctors and specialists start by a thorough review of the patient’s medical history along with examination of the patient's wound or infectious disease, which includes taking photographs to track wound healing progress. The wound healing center's clinical specialist becomes a partner with the patient and the patient's primary care doctor. Through regular reports and updates on progress, the wound healing staff works with the patient's primary care doctor, other providers, and wound and infectious disease specialists to develop a total team approach to treatment and care. Evidence-based and best practice modeled treatments mean wound and infectious disease patients will have access to the most modern and cutting edge modalities to aid in the wound healing process.

If you do not have a primary care doctor you can still be seen by a specialist in the wound care center, as in most cases a referral is not necessary to be seen. In most instances wound and infectious disease treatments are covered by Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance plans.

Wound and Infectious Disease Treatment

Our specialists and professional staff at Jonesboro and Paragould Wound Healing Centers in Arkansas have each received advanced training in wound care and follow proven scientific evidence based clinical practice guidelines. Wound and infectious disease doctors and specialists complete training and are mentored by an experienced management team. Our nurses are also trained and certified in Wound Care and infectious diseases. The result of this intense training is a team of highly skilled and experienced specialists providing the most efficient management for patient with chronic wounds and infectious diseases. An evidence based wound healing protocol is initiated during a patient’s first visit to the wound care center. This typically includes a thorough work-up of the patient’s overall health status including labs, x-rays and vascular work-ups as indicated. This enables us to determine why a wound has not followed the “normal” healing process.

An interdisciplinary approach is taken, and referrals are often made within the first few weeks. These referrals usually include dietary and diabetes management, endocrinologists, infectious disease, general and/or orthopedic surgeons, vascular surgeons, primary care doctor if patient does not have one, orthotist for offloading, durable medical equipment specialists, social services and home health. By utilizing the multiple disciplines, our wound and infectious disease doctors and specialists are often able to uncover the missing link as to why this wound has not healed. Wound and infectious disease patients are required to return to the wound care center on a weekly basis for the management of their wound.
