Advanced Wound Healing Therapies for Chronic Non-Healing Wounds
Chronic wounds are those that do not progress through a normal, orderly, and timely sequence of repair. Wounds that do not heal within three months are often considered chronic in nature. They are common and are often incorrectly treated. These wounds can cause patients severe emotional and physical stress and create a significant financial burden on patients. They are often painful and tender. Wounds often drain and emit odours, and applied dressings are often conspicuous. Unprotected by an intact skin envelope, these wounds can be retraumatised and may increase in size. They may develop an infection leading to systemic sepsis and potential amputation if on a limb or need for further surgical cleaning. The chance of a chronic wound to heal completely reduces the longer it is left untreated by a specialist.
Our clinic provides comprehensive, up-to-date and evidence-based wound healing management therapies. Dr Tang has been previously certified by the American Board of Wound Management (ABWM). Your hard to heal wound will be evaluated carefully and a customised individual treatment plan will be developed to optimise wound healing trajectory for you. The initial evaluation will include identifying systemic and local factors, which may contribute to the delayed wound healing process. These may include pressure, trauma, poor blood supply, swelling, infection, sugar control and poor nutrition.
