Wound Management FAQ’s
Who needs wound management?
If you have a wound that has not healed after eight weeks, then you are a candidate for the Scottsdale Healthcare Wound Management Center.
What causes non-healing wounds?
Non-healing, or “chronic” wounds are commonly caused by diabetes, poor circulation and collagen vascular disease. Our wound management program offers patients a variety of treatments to bring relief from chronic wounds.
How does wound management work?
The Scottsdale Healthcare Wound Management Center is designed to offer individually tailored treatment. We begin by examining your wound and reviewing your general health history. Blood analysis and/or special tests may be performed to provide information about the blood and oxygen flow to the affected area. Once the test results are returned, a plan of care is developed for each patient.
If I see a doctor at the wound management center, can I still see my own doctor?
Of course, and we will work closely with your personal doctor. In fact, many physicians refer their patients to a wound management center and we consider your doctor a partner in your care. Your personal physician will receive frequent communication on your progress. For routine medical care, you will still need to see your personal physician.
