If you have an open wound that is slow or non-healing, it is recommended that you be seen by a wound care specialist

After completion of the free leg screening, patients with slow healing wounds may be referred to a Wound Care Specialist.

Throughout Tampa Bay, this program works with many centers dedicated to the treatment of slow healing and non-healing wounds.

Depending upon the nature of the wound, treatment plans may include:           

  • Topicals and wound dressings
  • Debridement
  • Compression therapy
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
  • Vacuum-assisted wound closure
  • Physical therapy

Many insurance programs require pre-authorization for this initial visit. Staff at the wound care centers will work with your insurance company and primary physician’s office to obtain any necessary pre-approvals.

Call 727-475-4039 to schedule your evaluation and begin the process of healing your wound.
