Wound Care Opens at McPherson Center for Health
McPherson Center for Health, recently announced the opening of Wound Care, an outpatient facility offering a comprehensive approach for patients with non-healing wounds.
The center’s patients are examined by a clinical staff trained in wound care and evaluated for all possible related conditions, such as diabetes, that could interfere with proper healing. The care team follows evidence-based clinical pathways to determine why wounds are not healing and then develops individual treatment plans, utilizing the most effective technologies available to provide maximum healing and relief.
“Between five and seven million Americans experience at least one form of a non-healing wound annually and the incidence of these wounds is increasing by approximately 10 percent each year as the population ages,” said Clayton Fetsch, MD, FACS. “Many of these individuals suffer from wounds that refuse to heal despite conventional treatment. These wounds seldom involve a simple answer.”
McPherson Center for Health Wound Care provides a comprehensive approach to treating patients with non-healing wounds. The team features nurses and technicians with advanced training in wound care.
The clinic is open Tuesdays from 8:30 to 5:00 p.m. For more information about wound care or to schedule an appointment, call 620-241-4056.
