Wounds that do not heal quickly or appropriately often indicate more serious underlying medical issues such as diabetes, heart conditions or vascular problems. The wound care team at Swedish specializes in finding those underlying causes that keep chronic wounds from healing.
Your Care Plan
You’re an important member of your wound care team. Your doctor, nurses and therapists will do their best to help your wound heal quickly and completely. However, they need you to take an active role in caring for your wound. Much of the success of your wound healing depends on your level of commitment and involvement.
Our wound care professionals work with you, your family, caregivers and primary care providers to coordinate care and develop an appropriate treatment program. Using this multidisciplinary approach, we're able to provide treatment and education to heal wounds and prevent them from recurring.
