The First Step
Just call the Wound Center at (843) 674-4570. We will take brief information from you about your wound and general health, and schedule an appointment for you to come in for a visit. We will ask you to bring a list of medications you are taking, allergies you may have, etc. along with medical records which can be obtained from your regular doctor. Finally, you will need to bring any insurance cards, forms, etc. for any applicable insurance coverage.
The First Visit
As part of your initial visit, the Wound Center team will review and evaluate both your wound and your general medical history. If necessary, certain tests will be performed to determine whether you are experiencing problems with blood flow, tissue oxygenation or infection, and the role such problems may be playing in your wound's inability to heal.
The Treatment Program
After all information and test results have been analyzed, the Wound Center team, in partnership with your family physician, will develop a treatment plan based on the multidisciplinary approach.
You will return for regular visits to the Wound Center during your treatment, and will also be instructed in how to care for your wound at home, change your dressings properly and protect yourself from further injury.
It is important to note that you are the key to your treatment program. Success will result in large part from your level of participation and commitment. Working together, we will do everything possible to heal your chronic wound.
