Evaluation Services

When you come for your first appointment, we evaluate your wound and general health. Also, we review your medical, wound and medication histories to understand what could be affecting your healing process. Lab work or special tests may be necessary to give us information about blood and oxygen flow in the wound area. The more oxygen and blood flow your wound gets, the more quickly it heals.

Diagnostic Services

Specialized tests allow us to understand the complex factors affecting your wound’s healing process. These tests give us critical information to develop an individualized care plan that addresses what is needed to heal your wound.

Our diagnostic services include:

Transcutaneous oxygen measurement

It records the level of oxygen available to your wound

Doppler evaluation of pulses

It measures the blood flow available to bring nutrients and medication to the wound
