San Juan Regional Medical Center Wound Treatment Center, (WTC) offers advanced technology, modern treatment options, and education for care and prevention of wounds.
The services provided at the WTC are available for anyone experiencing a chronic, non-healing wound for 30 days or more. If you have a new injury, first go to your primary care doctor, San Juan Health Partners Urgent Care, or the emergency department to be evaluated.
Common chronic wounds include diabetic foot ulcers and venous leg ulcers. Simple wounds can become a problem for people with medical illnesses like diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis. If you have a wound that is unimproved in thirty days it is time to have it evaluated.
Individuals who have had radiation therapy can have “late effects of radiation” that may not look like open wounds but are still serious. These effects vary depending on the area of the body that received radiation. Issues can include dental problems, swallowing difficulty, tight painful tissues, and bleeding from the bowel or bladder. The Wound Treatment Center has specialized treatment with high pressure oxygen available that can help.
Reach out to your Primary Care provider for a referral and be sure to check with your insurance as coverage can vary based on your specific carrier. Call 505.609.6610 to make an appointment.
