A wound care clinic is a medical facility that is focused on the diagnosis, care, and treatment of complex non-healing wounds such as ulcers, pressure wounds, or surgical wounds.
Wound care service is provided by healthcare providers who are specialized in this field. The wound care team provides wound assessments and creates a treatment plan that is focused on wound healing and prevention of wound reoccurrence. For wound care, patients can be seen in inpatient and outpatient settings, as well as in their own homes.
Some of the treatment options provided at a wound care clinic include debridement (clearing the wound of dead skin and tissue), skin grafts, ultrasound therapy, negative pressure therapy, and growth factor therapy.
