Wound Care Awareness Week June 5 to 9
For most people, wound healing is a natural process. But for others, it is a complex medical problem that requires specialized treatment and care.
Our wound team is helping raise awareness of chronic wounds in honor of Wound Care Awareness Week being held from June 5 to June 9.
It is estimated that chronic wounds affect 6.7 million people in the U.S. With an aging population and increasing rates of diseases and conditions such as diabetes and obesity, this number is growing each year. Our wound healing and hyperbaric medicine teams provide treatment and services in Battle Creek, Kalamazoo, Paw Paw and South Haven. We offer personalized treatment plans to meet your wound care needs, which include:
- Advanced dressings
- Bio-engineered tissue substitutes
- Blood cultures and biopsies to identify potential infections
- Compression therapy
- Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
- Inpatient wound treatment
- Negative pressure wound therapy
- Outpatient wound treatment
- Platelet technologies
People with wounds that have not improved with traditional methods of treatment may benefit from a visit to Bronson Wound Center and Hyperbaric Medicine in either Battle Creek or South Haven or one of our Burn and Wound Centers in Kalamazoo or Paw Paw.
