Outpatient Wound Care Clinic
Patients with lower leg and foot wounds - particularly patients who have diabetes - may benefit from the expert care offered by the Outpatient Wound Care Clinic at OSF Saint Elizabeth. Treatment is offered by the clinic's Medical Director, Dr. Brittany Crowhurst, a staff podiatrist.
Dr. Crowhurst offers complete assessment and management of chronic, non-healing wounds as well as comprehensive screening, advanced healing, and a limb salvage program. In addition to diabetes as a risk factor, wounds may also occur as the result of surgical procedures, nerve damage, circulation problems, pressure ulcers or vascular disease.
What if My Wound isn't Foot Related?
Our rehab services department also offers a trained wound care specialist who can assist with chronic wounds, advanced healing, changing wound dressings and more. If you're unable to travel for an appointment due to illness or injury, our Home Care staff can also assist with your wound care needs at home.
Your doctor will be able to give you a referral to the appropriate service depending on your condition.
