At the Spartanburg Regional Wound Healing Center, every patient receives individualized care specialized specifically for their needs to ensure a meaningful recovery.
Some conditions we treat include:
- Chronic Leg Ulcers (venous stasis ulcers)
People with poor circulation due to other health issues may have trouble healing wounds.
- Diabetic Ulcers
Diabetics can have problems healing wounds on their feet and legs.
- Pressure Ulcers
People with limited mobility may develop pressure wounds, often called bed sores.
- Non-healing Surgical Wounds
Surgical wounds may be slow to heal due to diabetes, obesity or other health issues that prevent normal healing following surgery.
We treat any kind of wound, including burns, problem wounds, and wounds from injury or accidents. If you have questions about a particular ailment, please talk with your physician or call us at 864-560-1650.
There are a vast variety of wounds and every one requires a different approach to treatment. The right treatment in a time-effective manner can mean a big difference to patients. The Spartanburg Regional Wound Center uses a variety of methods to treat different wounds from burns to ulcers.
We have many types of dressings available. We will provide you with the best dressing combination for your wound. If appropriate, we will educate you and your family on home wound care, or you may return to the clinic for on-going care.
For each dressing change visit you will be seen by one of our highly-skilled wound specialists who will evaluate your wound and change your dressings.
Home Health Services
You may be able to receive in-home health care for your wound.
Foot and leg wounds often need compression with elastic stockings or bandages to improve blood return, prevent blood pooling, and help control swelling. We will determine if your wound would benefit from this therapy.
Removing dead tissue and foreign materials from the wound are essential to promote healing. We have many techniques to clear the wound and allow new tissue to grow.
Wounds need to be clean and non-infected. Debridement and topical anti-bacterial dressings can help. If needed, we can also provide oral antibiotics.
To heal wounds on the bottom of feet, we must take pressure off the wound. Our team of highly-skilled casting technicians can help take pressure off wounds in a variety of ways using comfortable, easy-to-wear casts and boots custom-designed for each patient.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Diabetic and other problem wound may benefit from hyperbaric oxygen therapy (link to this), which has been scientifically proven to speed wound healing.
Our physical therapists offer highly-specialized wound treatments that may be part of your comprehensive treatment plan. These include whirlpool therapy, painless electric stimulation to help heal wounds, and ultrasound mist therapy to debride, clean and stimulate wound healing.
Spartanburg Regional Wound Healing Center has been using hyperbaric oxygen therapy since 1988. Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) is the medical use of concentrated oxygen to help in certain medical conditions.
By breathing hyperbaric oxygen in a pressurized chamber, the patient can deliver extremely high levels of oxygen to tissues in the body which, due to injury or disease, lack the required oxygen. Very high levels of oxygen can help new blood vessels form, help wounds heal, fight infections, and reduce swelling.
We are available for routine care during the day but our facility is available 24/7 for emergency cases.
