Do you suffer with any of the following conditions?
Between 5 million and 7 million Americans experience at least one form of a chronic wound annually. These chronic non-healing wounds refuse to heal despite conventional treatment and they seldom involve a simple answer.
Memorial Hermann Pearland Hospital provides comprehensive outpatient chronic wound management through our state-of-the-art and advanced services.
The center is staffed by a multidisciplinary team of affiliated physicians, nurses and technicians with advanced training in wound care.
The care team evaluates conditions and formulates individualized patient treatment plans using the most effective technologies available to provide maximum healing and relief.
You will be evaluated by the staff before and after your therapy. Only 100 percent cotton clothing is allowed in the chamber. Garments will be provided to you. Take any prescribed medications as usual (including pain medication) before you arrive and inform the staff during your evaluation. If you have a cold or sinus congestion, please inform the staff upon arrival, as this may determine whether nasal sprays and decongestants are administered.
The center’s mission is to improve the quality of life of patients with chronic and acute wounds and to reduce the number of amputations. The wound care team works with the referring physician to coordinate a plan of care to achieve the best possible outcomes.
Affiliated specialists develop individualized, evidence-based treatment plans for a full spectrum of problem wounds, including pressure ulcers, venous ulcers, diabetic ulcers, arterial ulcers, trauma wounds, crush injuries, burns, gangrene, problem surgical wounds, complex soft-tissue wounds, compromised skin flaps and grafts, radiation tissue damage and bone infections.
In general, most health insurance plans and Medicare cover the conditions listed. For specific questions about insurance coverage, please contact your insurance provider directly.
