23 New Ways to Heal Wounds

Catholic Health’s Advanced Wound Healing Centers bring you a whole new world of breakthroughs and specialized experience that can dramatically speed the healing process. In fact, many of our patients heal twice as fast. Here’s why:

Advanced Wound Management Techniques

1. Advanced Debridement Techniques

Our highly skilled physicians use various debridement techniques to remove
non-viable tissue and prepare wounds for optimal healing.

2. Bio-engineered Skin Grafts

These grafts are applied to the patient’s wound bed to promote the growth of new skin and decrease
healing times.

3. Customized Compression Therapy

We use custom-designed compression wraps for each patient, condition, and wound stage.

4. Total Contact Casting

Total contact casing allows the patient’s foot and wound to be “off-loaded” which relieves pressure and shear forces, and reduces healing time.

5. Advanced Wound Dressings

These dressings maintain a moist wound environment which, unlike gauze dressings, reduces topical infections and cuts the need to change dressings from several times a day to several times a week.

The Latest Tools for Making a More Accurate Diagnosis

6. Minimally Invasive Imaging Studies

A variety of minimally invasive imaging studies, including Doppler studies, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and radionuclide imaging, assess extremity blood flow.

7. Transcutaneous Oxygen Testing (TCOM)

TCOM helps determine suitability for hyperbaric oxygen therapy, potential for healing and oxygen perfusion to tissues surrounding a wound.

8. Comprehensive Infection Assessment and Intervention

Our wound care specialists evaluate potential for infections and advise patients on treatment and specialty Infectious Disease referral options.

New Treatment Options Reduce Healing Time

9. Nationally Recognized Clinical Practice Guidelines

We follow nationally recognized clinical practice guidelines for diagnosing, determining appropriate care, and ensuring the highest quality standards.

10. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) exposes patients to 100 percent oxygen in a pressurized hyperbaric oxygen chamber. By promoting the growth of new blood vessels, HBOT stimulates healing and in many cases cuts weeks off the healing process.

11. Electrical Stimulation

Electrical Stimulation promotes healing in slow-to-heal wounds. We partner with Catholic Health physical therapists to provide these treatments.

12. Negative Pressure Therapy

This unique therapy uses a vacuum-assisted device to manage wound drainage and promote the development of new tissue.

13. Pulsed Lavage-Pressurized Irrigation

Pulsed Lavage-Pressurized Irrigation cleans wounds using a high-pressure device to deliver an irrigation solution to the wound.

14. Infrared Light Therapy

Infrared Light Therapy stimulates the healing process for difficult wounds. We partner with Catholic Health Physical Therapists to provide this therapy.

Comprehensive Team of Specialists

15. Specialists in Wound Care

Our medical directors have specialty wound care certification and are board certified in Hyperbaric Medicine.

16. International Training

Our specialists have traveled internationally to gain knowledge on the latest treatment options.

17. Multidisciplinary Care

Advanced Wound Care Center specialists work together with a patient’s primary care physician, podiatrist, surgeon, or other specialist. By collaborating and coordinating care, our wound care team concentrates on the whole process, addresses the underlying source of the problem, reduces healing times, and minimizes the cost of treatment.

18. Our specialists Address the Underlying Issues

Our team includes medical, surgical, and podiatry experts from Catholic Health, Western New York’s leading health care resource.

19. Partnering with Rehab

We take wound care beyond healing to the next level by helping patients restore full mobility and regain quality of life.

More Support Means More Healing

20. Patient and Caregiver Education

Treating the complications associated with problem wounds is only a part of the care we provide. Our approach includes extensive patient and caregiver education to ensure the best results and prevent future wound problems.

21. Nutritional Assessment

We partner with Catholic Health’s registered dieticians to assess a patient’s nutritional status and treat any deficiencies.

22. Save a Leg, Save a Life Foundation

Advanced Wound Healing Centers actively participates in this supportive nationwide network of physicians, nurses, and other providers working together to avoid lower extremity amputations.

23. Satisfied Patients Tell the Story
