Wound care

Most wounds heal over time. Sometimes, however, underlying conditions can prevent wounds from healing. At Novant Health Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine, we specialize in treating chronic, difficult-to-heal wounds including but not limited to:

  • Venous leg ulcers.
  • Foot ulcers caused by diabetes or poor circulation.
  • Surgical wounds.
  • Pressure ulcers.
  • Radiation burns.
  • First- and second-degree burns.

When to seek treatment for a wound

You should seek treatment if you have a wound that:

  • Has not healed after four to six weeks.
  • Has become worse after four to six weeks.
  • Has resisted healing for months or years.

Wound care expertise and services

Our board-certified physicians have years of experience in wound care; R. Bradley Thomason, III, MD, has also earned the designation of Certified Wound Specialist by the American Board of Wound Management. He and our other providers offer wound care services including:

  • Advanced wound dressings.
  • Bioengineered skin substitutes (Apligraf® and Dermagraft®).
  • Antibiotic therapy.
  • Negative pressure therapy.
  • Vacuum-assisted closure (VAC).
  • Compression therapy.
  • Preventative diabetic foot care.
  • Debridement.

Once your provider has assessed your wound along with any underlying disease processes contributing to it, your provider will work with any other specialists involved in your care to create a comprehensive treatment plan to provide an optimal environment for healing.
