Wound care management is an important step into healing wounds and preventing further ones from happening. At OSF St. Francis Hospital & Medical Group, we provide specialized care for issues like
- venous stasis ulcers
- diabetic ulcers
- pressure ulcers
- traumatic wounds
We also address patient education such as with diabetic foot care, edema control and dressing changes, if needed. Providing the appropriate care is important to avoid further complications such as osteomyelitis, amputation, sepsis, and infection.
