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.
