OSF Wound Care Clinic

OSF Wound Care supports the Mission of OSF HealthCare by providing quality wound care to clients and the community, and augmenting and complementing existing OSF HealthCare services.

Services

Wound care is provided to patients age 10 and over with chronic, non-healing wounds of greater than 30 days. These also 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:

  • Venous ulcers
  • Arterial ulcers
  • Traumatic wounds
  • Non-healing surgical wounds
  • Diabetic ulcers
  • Abscesses
  • Burns
  • Decubitus ulcers
  • Lacerations
  • Atypical ulcers (pyoderma gangrenosum or calciphylaxis)

Treatment Options

Wound care specialists at the OSF Wound Care Clinic work with your physician to develop an individualized treatment plan.

Treatment options may include:

  • Vascular, plastic and general surgery
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
  • Debridement
  • Compression therapy
  • Nutritional and diabetes education
  • Patient and caregiver education
  • Advanced wound dressings
  • Physical therapy
  • Home care coordination
  • Counseling
  • Lymphedema and negative pressure therapy

Appointment Information

All OSF Wound Care Clinic patients will receive an initial screening. Written consent will be obtained to take pictures of the wound(s) and for debridement, biopsy, incision and drainage, laceration management, or other procedure if indicated. The patient’s history will be obtained and the wounds will be measured, cleansed, and assessed by the nurse.

When appropriate, the patient, significant other, and other health care providers are involved in the process.

The OSF Wound Care Clinic provider will evaluate and treat the wound(s) and any related problems.
