WOUND HEALING SERVICES

Marlette Wound Healing Services of Marlette Regional Hospital is dedicated to healing wounds, preventing lower limb loss, and optimizing outcomes for our patients.

If you or a loved one has a wound that is of concern or is not healing properly, we encourage you to visit our wound center for an evaluation.

A wound that is not healing properly may be complicated by underlying conditions such as diabetes, circulation problems, or previous radiation treatment. Sometimes, the simplest of wounds can turn into a significant problem because the body’s normal healing process is affected. Other types of hard-to-heal wounds result from pressure, trauma, or infection. Non-healing wounds can have serious health consequences and may adversely affect your quality of life. We can help.

Types of Wounds Treated
As a comprehensive wound healing center, we specialize in the treatment of all types of non-healing and difficult-to-heal wounds including:

  • Diabetic foot ulcers.
  • Venous ulcers.
  • Pressure ulcers.
  • Non-healing, surgical wounds.
  • Arterial/ischemic ulcers.
  • Traumatic wounds.
  • Infected wounds.
  • Crush injuries.
  • Compromised flaps or grafts.

What Can Patients Expect?
Your course of treatment depends on what type of wound you have. During your first visit, our staff will evaluate your wound and review your medical history. You may also need special tests that give us information about circulation and infection. This will help to determine what course of treatment you will need.

Once a treatment plan has been prescribed, you will visit our wound healing center weekly for specialized treatments and documentation of your healing progress. Keeping appointments and following directions are critical to attaining a positive healing outcome. Some things you can do to assist with your healing:

  • Care for your wound at home as directed by the wound care team.
  • Take medications as directed.
  • Return for your follow-up appointments.
  • Keep regular appointments with your primary care physician while you are receiving wound care treatment.

Following your treatment plan is the single most important factor in your healing. Please don’t hesitate to contact us about your treatment plan. We’re happy to clarify anything you feel uncertain about regarding the wound care treatment process.
