Sierra View Medical Center
Wound Healing Department in Porterville
Your Health Partner For Life
Our Wound Healing Department® at Sierra View Medical Center is managed by Healogics™, the number one medical provider in the nation for wound healing. We provide specialized treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds, which are defined as sores or wounds that have not significantly improved from conventional treatment.
Non-healing wounds have many negative effects on the quality of life, including:
- Inadequate circulation
- Poorly functioning veins
We Achieve Stellar Outcomes
When wounds persist, a specialized approach is required for healing. Typically, a wound that does not respond to normal medical care within 30 days is considered a problem or chronic wound. At Sierra View Medical Center Wound Healing Department, we use state-of-the-art treatments including debridement, dressing selection, special shoes, and patient education to yield stellar results.
Through the use of hyperbaric oxygen chambers and an expert staff of medical professionals, people with non-healing and chronic wounds now have a place to turn to receive effective and compassionate medical care.
Our approach to treating wounds involves an interdisciplinary model including the following:
- Infectious disease management
- Laboratory evaluation
- Nutritional management
- Pain management
- Diabetic education
- Radiology testing
