Injury and Wound Care

Injury and Wound Care

Service Line

Some wounds need special care. Especially wounds that may be related to diabetes, vascular disease and other conditions, because these wounds can take longer to heal.

Advanced Wound Treatment

Mercy’s team approach to care means that we coordinate your therapy with any underlying conditions you may have. Your team of wound care specialists – which may include physicians, nurses and physical therapists – will assess your needs and work together to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that’s right for you.

Our goal is to speed up the healing of your wounds safely and comfortably, so you can return to the health and lifestyle you deserve.

Types of Wound Care

Mercy offers complete care services for treating all types of wounds. One of the more successful treatment options is hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which involves the breathing of pure oxygen. As this therapy lets your blood carry pure oxygen throughout your body, it can promote faster healing.

Our specialists are experienced in treating injuries and wounds including:

  • Arterial and venous wounds
  • Surgical wounds
  • Compromised grafts/flaps
  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Pressure ulcers

  • Osteomyelitis
  • Radiation necrosis
  • Crush injuries
  • Chronic wounds
