St. David's Round Rock Medical Center's Wound Care program treats problem wounds that are not healing properly. Wound healing is a complex process which, when disrupted, often requires specialized intervention. The Wound Care program takes an intensive, multi-disciplinary approach to focus on healing wounds as rapidly as possible and also treating the underlying causes that compromise the healing process.
Wound Care offers both inpatient and outpatient care, and our staff includes both Certified Wound Specialist Nurses and Wound Ostomy and Continence Nurses.
A surprising number of people require wound care at some point in their lives. A minimum of 15 percent of patients with diabetes will have chronic, non-healing wounds during their lifetimes. There are many other conditions that can contribute to non-healing wounds, such as peripheral vascular disease, arterial or venous ulcers, traumatic injury, radiation therapy, lymphedema and complications following surgery.
Our Wound Care program features:
- Intensive, patient-centered wound treatment protocols
- Close coordination with referring physicians and specialists
- Staff specially trained in wound care, including debridement and infection control
- Surgical treatment when medically indicated
- Patient education covering wound care, nutrition, exercise and prevention
