Venous ulcers, a common but complex wound type, require specialized care for effective healing. At Local Wound Care of Glendale, we provide comprehensive venous ulcer wound care, utilizing advanced techniques and personalized treatment plans to promote healing and prevent recurrence.

Understanding Venous Ulcers

Venous ulcers, typically occurring on the legs, are caused by poor blood circulation due to damaged veins. These ulcers can be painful and may take a long time to heal. Effective treatment requires not only addressing the wound itself but also the underlying venous insufficiency.

Comprehensive Treatment Approach

Our approach to venous ulcer care includes:

  • Assessment and Diagnosis: A thorough evaluation to understand the extent of the ulcer and the venous condition.
  • Wound Cleaning and Debridement: Removing dead tissue and cleaning the ulcer to prevent infection.
  • Advanced Wound Dressings: Utilizing dressings that cater to the unique needs of venous ulcers.
  • Compression Therapy: A key component in venous ulcer treatment to improve blood flow and reduce swelling.
  • Patient Education: Informing patients about self-care practices to manage symptoms and prevent recurrence.

Advanced Treatment Modalities

We incorporate advanced treatment modalities into our venous ulcer care:

  • Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT): For larger or more complex ulcers, NPWT can aid in healing.
  • Bioengineered Tissue Products: These can be used in cases where traditional therapies are ineffective.
  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT): In select cases, HBOT can enhance the healing of chronic venous ulcers.

Addressing Underlying Ulcer Causes

An integral part of our treatment plan is addressing the underlying venous insufficiency. This may involve:

  • Lifestyle Modifications: Such as weight management and exercise to improve circulation.
  • Medical Management: Working with vascular specialists to treat venous insufficiency.
