Wound Care Services

Nurse is taking care of patient wound.

Enloe provides a full range of wound services. Care is directed by a physician and managed by a board-certified wound nurse.

We treat pressure ulcers, burns, grafts, flaps, skin tears, excoriated skin and other types of wounds. We perform thorough wound assessments and tailor a plan to meet your needs.

Our Therapies

Wound Debridement

Removes damaged or infected tissue.

Advanced Wound Dressings

Control the moisture level of a wound.

Wound Irrigation

Cleanses the area to remove bacteria and debris.

Compression Therapy

Uses gentle pressure to improve blood flow to wounds in the legs.

Negative Pressure Wound Therapy

Uses a vacuum pump to draw out fluid and infection.

Hyperbaric Therapy

Exposes wounds to 100% oxygen in a pressurized chamber. Because wounds need oxygen to heal, this oxygen may enhance healing.

Bring your insurance card and any medical records from your primary doctor we don’t already have.

If you’re diabetic, bring snacks or medications as the first visit takes extra time.

When you arrive, our caregivers will review your medical history, assess your wound and check your general health. The doctor may order tests to evaluate blood flow in the wound area.

Your Treatment Program

When your tests are in, we’ll put together a treatment program based on your unique needs. This program will include regular visits for treatment, checking progress or making changes. We’ll provide you or your caregiver with instructions for how to care for your wound between visits.
