Wound Care

Some wounds can easily be treated with first aid and ointments, but some are far more serious and may need medical attention. Wounds that won’t heal can be a source of pain and disability.

The St. Claire Regional Medical Center (SCR) Advanced Wound Care team is dedicated to helping patients with chronic or non-healing wounds. A team of specialized doctors, nurses, therapists and other healthcare providers offers personalized treatment plans using the latest therapeutic methods in wound management. Advanced wound care products and treatments accelerate healing while maximizing patient comfort. Ongoing patient education and support helps minimize the risk of reoccurrence.

Can I Benefit from Wound Care?

Age, smoking, poor dietary habits and obesity can increase a person’s risk of developing a chronic wound. Conditions such as hypertension and diabetes limit blood flow and slow the body’s healing process.

Foot or Leg ulcers as a result of diabetes or poor circulation.
Non-healing surgical wounds.
