About Us

 

For most people, the body heals naturally when it has a wound. But some wounds may be slow to heal, and specialized treatment may be required at our Wound Center. Non-healing wounds can occur for many reasons, including diabetes or other chronic diseases, poor circulation, nutritional status or age and body size.

Crisp Regional Wound Care treats patients recovering from diabetic, arterial, surgical, trauma or other non-healing wounds, as well as burns and pressure ulcers. Most patients are referred after an inpatient hospital stay or from their personal physician. We also accept self-referrals. We will see patients of all ages who would benefit from wound care.

Our clinic is located across the street from Crisp Regional Hospital.

Hours:

By appointment, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Clinic on Monday afternoons, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays

Who we are

Description: Specializing in the treatment of non-healing, chronic wounds, Crisp Regional Wound Center offers an evidence-based, systematic approach to advanced wound care.

State of the Art Care: In addition to Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, the Center also employs the use of negative pressure wound therapy, bio-engineered tissues, biosynthetic dressings and growth factor therapies.

Conditions Treated: The Center treats patients with chronic non-healing wounds. Conditions treated include, but are not limited to:

  • Diabetic wounds of the lower extremities
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Soft tissue radiation injuries
  • Necrotizing infections
  • Compromised skin grafts and flaps
  • Burns
  • Osteomyelitis
  • Lymphedema
  • Malignant wounds
  • Venous Leg ulcer

A Growing Need: In the United States, chronic wounds affect 6.7 million people and the incidence is expected to rise at two percent annually over the next decade. An aging population and increasing rates of diseases and conditions such as diabetes, obesity and the late effects of radiation therapy contribute to the chronic wound epidemic. Untreated, chronic wounds can lead to diminished quality of life and possibly amputation of the affected limb.

Partnered with an Industry Leader: The Crisp Regional Wound Center has partnered with Healogics, Inc. to join their network of nearly 800 Wound Care Centers nation-wide. Healogics is headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida and is the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services.

One the Leading Edge: As a Healogics Wound Care Center, the Center benefits from the company’s commitment to research to keep it on the leading edge of health care by utilizing their Clinical Practice Guidelines to ensure continuity of care, as well as high standard of care.
