The Wound Center at Doctors Hospital of Sarasota is working to raise awareness of the chronic wound epidemic, and the advanced treatments available to those living with chronic, non-healing wounds. As a member of the Healogics Wound Care Center® network, the wound center has access to a vast network of tools, education and expertise.
With a growing number of chronic wound cases in the United States, advanced wound care has never been more important. Delivering specialty wound care for patients can result in better outcomes, including faster healing times and fewer amputations.
The Wound Center at Doctors Hospital of Sarasota offers an evidence-based, systematic approach to advanced wound care. A patient’s individualized treatment plan may include specialized wound dressings, debridement, compression therapy, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, advanced cellular products and topical growth factors, edema management and/or non-invasive vascular assessment. These treatments are the result of a team approach between the Center’s physicians, nurses and the referring physician. A treatment plan is developed and scheduled based on the patient’s needs. Once treatment is complete, the patient will return to their primary physician to continue routine care.
Likely candidates for treatment at the Center are those suffering from diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections, arterial ulcers, late effects of radiation, compromised skin grafts and flaps and wounds that haven’t healed within a reasonable time frame. People with wounds that have not improved with traditional methods of treatment may benefit from a visit to The Wound Center at Doctors Hospital of Sarasota located at 5741 Bee Ridge Road, Ste 120, Sarasota, FL 34233 or call (941) 342-8060. No referral is needed.
