St. Bernards Wound Healing, with five locations, provides care to patients with chronic and complicated wounds and infectious diseases. Our physicians and other specialists offer the most current and recommended treatments, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and tailor them to the specific needs of patients.
Care begins with a thorough review of medical history and examination, including wound photographs to help track healing progress, labs and other diagnostic exams. Our physicians, specialists and professional staff have advanced training in wound care and follow proven scientific evidence-based clinical practice guidelines to aid healing. This highly-trained, highly-skilled team provides the most efficient management for chronic wounds and infectious diseases, with patients returning to the center weekly or bi-weekly for care.
To create a total team approach to care, the Wound Healing team partners with patients and their primary care doctors, providing regular updates and reports on progress. Referrals to additional specialty areas often help to uncover why a wound has not healed in an expected time frame. These areas can include dietary and diabetes management, endocrinologists, infectious disease, surgeons, orthotist, durable medical equipment specialists, social services and home health.
