Faster Healing for a Full Life
Chronic and non-healing wounds resulting from diabetes, trauma, vascular disease or immobility are not only painful, but also a serious health risk. The wound management specialists at Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital provide comprehensive and compassionate care for complicated acute wounds and slow-healing, chronic wounds, including surgical wounds, vascular wounds, pressure ulcers, lymphedema, traumatic wounds, cellulitis and diabetic foot ulcers.
Our team of physical therapists and physical therapy assistants, including therapists who are board certified as Certified Wound Specialists through the American Board of Wound Management, have years of experience in complex wound management. After an initial review of the body’s systems, a functional assessment and wound evaluation, we formulate an individualized treatment plan using advanced therapies and proven clinical protocols to provide the most effective treatment options.
As nationally recognized experts in our field, we draw on years of research and clinical studies to provide the very best care. Among other findings, our research has resulted in published peer-reviewed literature on low-frequency ultrasound for patients with chronic wounds. Multiple awards highlight our accomplishments and underline our focus on evidence-based practice, demonstrating that we always put our patients first. We stay on the leading edge of treatment techniques, using the most current technology available, including an Arobella Qoustic Wound Therapy System, the latest low-frequency ultrasound debridement.
