With wound treatment that offers hope for healing there is no longer any reason to live with a non-healing wound.
The Oklahoma Heart Hospital Wound Center is a specialty clinic focused on healing chronic wounds. The causes of wounds are complex, and our group represents expertise in all of the major areas necessary to handle the varied circumstances and challenges of patients with chronic or difficult to heal wounds. Whatever it takes for healing to occur, we’re equipped and staffed to make it happen.
When should I seek treatment for my wound at the Wound Center?
Ask your doctor about visiting our Wound Center if:
- You have a wound that hasn’t healed in 30 days (commonly experienced by people with diabetes).
- You have a sore with increasing pain, redness or swelling, foul odor, or a change in color.
- You have a surgical wound that has become infected
What to bring to your first appointment:
- A list of any medications you’re currently taking as well as any allergies you’re aware of
- Medical records including x-ray films if you have them
- Insurance forms or cards
How to Start Healing
Generally, the physician currently treating you will refer you to the Wound Center for specialized care but you can also make an appointment directly.
The Healing Process
When you call for your first appointment, we will ask you a few questions about your wound and your health in general.
Before treatment, our team of doctors and nurses will thoroughly evaluate your wound and review you health and medical history.
Tests may be conducted to tell us more about your blood flow and tissue oxygenation as well as to determine if there’s any infection present.
Together with your physician, we’ll develop a treatment program based on your special needs. We are in constant communication with your doctor throughout your care. Once your wound is healed, you’ll return to your doctor for follow-up care.
With our caring staff and specialized treatment plans developed just of you, we have what you need to get back on your feet again. Most of our treatments are covered by Medicare/Medicaid, HMOs, and other private insurance plans. We are experts at caring for people whose wounds have resisted traditional treatment. Call us or come by to schedule an appointment today.
