Your Wound Treatment Program

After providing a thorough diagnostic examination to identify your wound and the underlying problem causing the wound, our program will tailor a program to meet your needs. This will be initiated based on the most effective treatment options. Once a treatment plan has been initiated, you will visit the Enloe Wound/Ostomy & Hyperbaric Center on a regular basis for wound care. You will be instructed on how to administer your own wound care at home between visits, as well as to protect your wound from further complications. You are the most important part of your healing process.
