Pressure ulcers, also known as bedsores, are a significant concern in wound care, particularly among patients with limited mobility. Our clinic focuses on providing effective treatment strategies and preventive measures to manage these wounds, enhancing the quality of life for affected individuals.

Identifying and Treating Pressure Ulcers

Pressure ulcers occur due to prolonged pressure on the skin, commonly affecting areas over bony prominences. Early identification and intervention are crucial. Our treatment approach includes:

  • Regular Skin Assessments: To identify potential pressure ulcers at the earliest stage.
  • Pressure Relief Strategies: Including repositioning, specialized mattresses, and cushioning devices.
  • Wound Cleaning and Care: Thorough cleaning and appropriate dressing of the ulcers to promote healing.
  • Nutritional Support: Ensuring adequate nutrition to support skin integrity and healing.

Advanced Treatment Modalities

We utilize advanced treatment modalities to enhance the healing of pressure ulcers:

  • Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT): Aiding in reducing edema and promoting granulation tissue formation.
  • Topical Treatments: Utilizing creams and ointments that support wound healing and provide symptom relief.
  • Surgical Intervention: In severe cases, surgical debridement or reconstruction may be necessary.
