Team-Based Wound Care

Our clinic utilizes a team-based approach to coordinate and personalize your plan of care. In addition to our physicians and nurse practitioners, you will also have access to specialists (including vascular surgeons, dermatologists and orthopedists), home care nurses, and physical therapists to help treat and manage contributing conditions. In necessary cases, we even ensure continuity of care by working with extended care facilities and home health services.

Providing Ongoing Care

The ultimate goal is to heal all wounds completely – but sometimes, it’s just not possible. In these cases, we provide insight and guidance in proper, ongoing wound care. These plans include a basic wound assessment, nutrition counseling, activity guidance and a structured, comprehensive evaluation of other contributing factors. Patients can request to receive all of their wound care directly from the clinic, to be trained on how to do it themselves, or they can request we partner with their other healthcare providers.

Innovative Treatment Options

Wound care has evolved significantly from the days of basic wet-to-dry bandage techniques, and has grown to include an astounding variety of therapies (like silver alginates, hydrocolloids and enzymatic debriders, to name only a few). Comprehensive care, however, often requires more than topical medications and first-rate dressings.

That’s why the Wound Clinic at FMC is prepared to perform the services you need, including wound grafts, negative pressure wound care, total contact casting and wound debridement.

With a commitment to excellence and a dedication to providing innovative care, our practice also serves as a test site for newly developed synthetic and biologic grafts. By participating in treatment studies, we are able to stay up-to-date on the newest innovations in healing, and visualize firsthand methods that could greatly improve patient lives. If you’re eligible for such treatment, the decision to participate is completely up to you. Those who choose to participate in trial studies are often able do so at little to no cost. For many, this is viewed as an added patient benefit to an already outstanding service.

Cutting-Edge Procedures, Exceptional Results

One of the most innovative grafting procedures at the clinic is referred to as Cellutome. The Cellutome machine is unique because it “harvests” and uses the patient’s own healthy epidermal (skin) tissue for wound repair. Once the sample is collected – generally from the upper thigh region – it is immediately placed in the prepared wound bed. The success rates after just one application have been phenomenal, even with some of our most persistent wounds.

This entire process is done right in our office as an outpatient procedure: no anesthesia is needed and little to no pain is associated with the treatment. The Cellutome grafting procedure can be used on all chronic wound types that have failed to heal using traditional, evidence-based protocols, and is covered by most insurances with no preauthorization required.

Available Services Include:

  • Evaluation and treatment of wound(s)
  • Diagnostic studies including imaging and laboratory studies
  • Non-invasive vascular studies
  • Special dressings based on the type of wound
  • Total contact casts
  • Negative pressure wound therapy
