Chronic, non-healing wounds, those that haven’t shown signs of improvement in several weeks or are not responding to typical treatments, need extra help to heal. Difficult wounds of this type are often caused by injury, disease or poor blood supply. Watsonville Community Hospital provides specialized treatment for these types of wounds.
The Monterey Bay Wound Treatment Center features a team of specially trained physicians, nurses, and technologists who provide wound care services.
We treat wounds resulting from:
After your primary care physician refers you to our center, you'll meet with a multi-specialty team of physicians and nurses who will conduct thorough examinations and review your medical history. They may order special tests to get more information about blood flow, tissue oxygenation and infections and will continue to consult your regular doctor and keep him or her abreast of your progress.
Once your test results are received and analyzed, your treatment team will develop a plan for your care. It may involve regular visits to the center and you will also be instructed on home-care, such as wound dressings and ways to protect yourself from further damage.
Finally, your participation is vital. It's important that you follow all directions, watch your progress closely and keep your appointments. Our staff is available to answer any questions you may have.
