The Wound Management Center at JFK Medical Center provides specialized treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds, which are defined as sores or wounds that have not significantly gotten better during the course of convential treatment.
These wounds can cause severe health risks and may result in life-threatening infections, possible amputation and debilitating health problems. With the state-of-the-art treatment available at The Wound Management Center people with slow-healing wounds no longer have to suffer. Our comprehensive approach can heal wounds that have resisted other treatments, and help you avoid loss of limbs, reduce incidence of recurrence, and get your life back.
Types of Wounds
Open wounds are those which have been previously treated or that won’t heal. We have physicians on staff that cover every discipline. Our experts have advanced knowledge in everything from vascular issues to pressure ulcers, and our state-of-the-art wound-care facility is ready to handle any issue.
Our #1 goal is to help your wound heal as quickly as possible. Our team of specialists will begin by assessing your current health, and then develop a treatment plan tailored to suit your specific needs. You should expect to visit our outpatient facility on a regular basis, where you’ll receive comprehensive instructions on home care, including dressing changes, infection prevention and education on preventing future wounds.
You’re not in this alone. From start to finish, we are totally committed to your health and treatment plan. After discharge, you will receive a call from a Wound Management nurse the next day, checking on your condition and making sure you understand all your home care instructions.
