Wound Care

Lake Charles Memorial Hospital Wound Care Center has provided healing for people in southwest Louisiana since 1991. Specializing in treatment of chronic wounds, the physician team is made up of local physicians and nurses who are specifically trained in wound care healing.

Approximately five million Americans suffer from chronic open sores that can become seriously infected, gangrenous and, in some cases, require amputation. Chronic wounds refer to any wound that lingers for weeks or months without healing.

While every patient presents unique challenges, we have successfully treated:

  • Diabetic skin sores
  • Pressure sores
  • Vessel disease wounds
  • Surgery wound breakdown
  • Coccyx ulcers
  • Poor circulation wounds

In the majority of patients, treatment programs produce healing within weeks, sometimes months, depending on the severity of the wound and the cooperation of the patient. Our wound care team will continue treatment as long as healing is progressing. They work with all home health agencies in the area, as well as family members who are willing to provide home care between office visits.

Medicare and Medicaid, as well as private insurances, are accepted. Physician referrals are welcome, but not necessary.
