We Offer the Following Treatments

  • Debridement (cleaning and removal of damaged tissue)
  • Advanced dressings
  • Medicines and support services for chronic, complex wounds
  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for qualifying wounds to stimulate damaged tissues, which helps heal chronic wounds and skin grafts and repair bone and tissue damage
  • Non-invasive vascular testing

When to Seek Wound Treatment

Ask your doctor about visiting our Wound Healing Center in these scenarios:

  • You have a wound that hasn’t healed in 30 days (commonly experienced by people with diabetes).
  • You have a sore with increasing pain, redness, swelling, foul odor or a change in color.
  • You have a surgical wound that has become infected.

A Network of Healing

Gritman Wound Healing Center is a member of the Healogics network. Healogics is the nation’s wound healing expert. Last year, more than 300,000 patients received advanced wound care through a nationwide network of over 600 wound care centers. The Healogics team is made up of almost 3,000 employees, 4,000 affiliated physicians and a Healogics specialty physician practice group of nearly 300. In addition to the company’s network of outpatient centers, Healogics partners with over 300 skilled nursing facilities to care for patients with chronic wounds and provides inpatient consults at more than 80 partner hospitals.

It is wonderful watching somebody go from having this horrible wound when they come in to leaving through our door with a smile on their face because they are back to the life they had before the injury and they are so grateful. It is so gratifying for us to know that we helped them do that.<span class="su-quote-cite">Sharon Cofre, Healogic Wound Care Team Member</span>

Diabetes and Wound Care

Caring for your skin when you have diabetes

Try these tips to help prevent dryness, injury and other skin problems.

  • Use warm water. Avoid hot water, which can dry out the skin.
  • Use a bath soap that has a moisturizer added. Use soap only as needed (on your feet, underarms, and groin). Avoid deodorant soaps and antibacterial soaps. They may dry your skin.
  • If your skin is dry, don’t use bubble baths. Use bath oil instead.
  • Use a moisturizer after you bathe. But don’t put it on skin folds and between your toes.
  • Use a home humidifier during cold weather and in dry climates
