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
- 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.
