Wound Care

Being healthy and active are two of life's great pleasures. Unfortunately, for people with wounds that won't heal, life sometimes loses its enjoyment because of pain, fear and the inability to get around.

The expert care team at OSF Wound Care uses the latest, most advanced solutions to treat slow-healing or non-healing wounds. We work with each patient to determine the wound's type, location, severity and cause.


Wound care is provided to patients aged 10 and older with chronic, non-healing wounds that have been present for more than 30 days.

These include individuals with slow-healing wounds or those with both an acute or chronic wound and a co-morbidity, which might inhibit wound healing.

We treat wounds such as:

  • Abscesses
  • Arterial ulcers
  • Atypical ulcers (pyoderma gangrenosum or calciphylaxis)
  • Burns
  • Decubitus ulcers

Treatment Options

Specialists at OSF Wound Care work with your physician to develop an individualized treatment plan.

Treatment options may include:

  • Advanced wound dressings
  • Bio-engineered skin substitutes
  • Compression therapy
  • Debridement
  • Home care coordination
  • Lymphedema and negative pressure therapy
  • Nutritional and diabetes education
  • Patient and caregiver education
  • Total contact casting

What to Expect

All OSF Wound Care patients receive an initial screening, which includes taking their history and measuring, cleaning and assessing their wounds.

We will ask for your written consent to take pictures of your wounds and for debridement, biopsy, incision and drainage, laceration management or other procedures if needed.

You, your support person, and your other health care providers are often included in the process.

Once we've finished the initial screening, your wound care provider will review the findings and share treatment options with you.
