The Wound Clinic at Bradford Regional Medical Center
The Wound Clinic focuses on the evaluation and treatment of chronic wounds below the knee. In patients with chronic, non-healing wounds, there is frequently an underlying health problem preventing the wound from healing in a natural fashion, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, peripheral arterial and venous disease, emphysema, arthritis, cancer, or lifestyle conditions.
The clinic’s goal is to offer the highest level of wound care and overall patient service. The team strives to improve the patient’s health, lifestyle and quality of life. Several interventions can relieve the patient’s pain and prevent recurrences of chronic wounds through patient education and proper care of wounds below the knee.
As part of a patient’s treatment, he or she may undergo laboratory tests, x-rays or other diagnostic tests to help develop a comprehensive and individualized course of treatment. Once the wound is healed, a follow-up plan is also instituted to reduce the risk of recurrence. The treatment philosophy is not only to heal the wound but to also produce a healthier patient who is able to return to a productive lifestyle.
