CYPRESS, TEXAS (September 28, 2017)

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, and trauma.

“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, MD, 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 therap
