Poor circulation and nerve damage make diabetics more vulnerable to infections, sores and ulcers. If they’re not treated properly, it can lead to amputation.

Services

According to the National Institute of Health, chronic wounds caused by diabetes, poor circulation, and other conditions affect about 6.5 million Americans every year, and these advanced wounds keep patients from enjoying their favorite activities.

If you have a chronic, non-healing wound, the staff at the Center for Advanced Wound Care, a program offered at Cornerstone Hospital in Round Rock, can help you get back to the activities you enjoy. Dedicated doctors, nurses and hyperbaric staff specialize in treating non-healing wounds, including those that have resisted healing after months or even years of traditional treatment.

You can be assured – we have a commitment to excellence when it comes to the level of care we provide.

Wound Vac Therapy

Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is a healing technique that uses a special vacuum dressing to heal acute and chronic wounds. The treatment involves the controlled use of sub-atmospheric pressure to the local wound environment. NPWT is used for diabetic ulcers as well as other types of wounds.

Skin Substitutes

Skin substitutes are used to help with wound closure, control pain and replace the function of the skin. Skin substitutes are either permanent or temporary.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen Therapy is the use of 100% oxygen under an increased pressure. Indications are as follows: Osteomyelitis, Diabetic Foot Ulcers , Air or Gas Embolism, Carbon Monoxide Poisoning, Gas Gangrene, Crush Injury, Compartment Syndrome, Acute Traumatic Ischemias, Decompression Sickness, Arterial Insufficiencies, Necrotizing Soft Tissue Infections, Delayed Radiation Injury, Compromised Grafts and Flaps.

Debridement

Debridement is the removal of dead, damaged, or infected tissues to improve healing of the remaining healthy tissue.
