Memorial Hermann Cypress Hospital Now Offering Advanced Wound Care
Memorial Hermann Cypress Hospital now offers advanced wound care treatment
for chronic wounds, ranging from diabetic ulcers to radiation-induced inflammation.
Chronic wounds have a range of causes, including diabetes, vascular disease,
“Treating a chronic wound may not be a simple fix. You
have to look at the cause of the impaired healing, as well as the wound itself,
for a patient to have the optimal outcome,” says Stuart Harlin, M.D., a vascular surgeon affiliated
with Memorial Hermann Wound Care at
Memorial Hermann Cypress
and UTHealth. “That’s why it’s important that you see specialists who treat
your wound using a comprehensive approach.”
Dr. Harlin says those with neuropathy or peripheral
arterial disease are at a higher risk of developing chronic wounds and should
speak to a physician if they notice a slow healing process.
“If a chronic wound is left untreated, it can lead
to bigger infections, like sepsis, or even limb amputation. Our advanced wound
care program can help prevent more severe conditions from occurring,” says Dr. Harlin.
Memorial Hermann Wound Care features a highly-skilled
team of affiliated physicians, nurses and technicians with advanced training in
wound care and hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy. Among the many treatment
interventions available, patients can also receive specialty wound dressings,
debridement, and negative-pressure wound therapy
