The Wound Center at Pikeville Medical Center provides specialized treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds. Our comprehensive approach can heal wounds that have resisted other treatments and can help patients avoid loss of limbs and/or reduce the incidence of recurrence.
Non-healing wounds are particularly prevalent among the estimated 25.8 million Americans affected by diabetes. Of those diagnosed, approximately 15 to 25 percent are at risk for developing foot ulcers.
A patient who has a wound that has not begun to heal after two weeks or who hasn’t healed completely within six weeks may benefit from advanced wound care modalities offered at the clinic such as:
- Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
- MIST® Ultrasound Therapy
- Cellular tissue-based products & bio-engineered skin grafting
- Total contact casting and other off-loading means
- Compression Wrapping
- Advance wound dressings
The Wound Center implements a comprehensive plan of care for each individual patient. Successful wound care is a combination of several treatments that work together to achieve healing.
Indications for Wound Therapy include:
- Diabetic Ulcers
- Neuropathic Ulcers
- Pressure Ulcers
- Venous Insufficiency
- Ischemic Ulcers
- Traumatic Wounds
- Surgical Wounds
We welcome the opportunity to work with you in the care of your patient. Physicians who have made referrals to the PMC Wound Center have been pleased with the results we deliver.
We also accept self-referrals from patients.
