Hamilton Memorial Hospital announced today the opening of their Wound Healing Center, an outpatient facility offering a comprehensive approach for patients with non-healing wounds.
The center’s patients are examined by surgeon, Dr. Rodney Miller who is trained in wound care and evaluated for all possible related conditions, such as diabetes, that could interfere with proper healing. The care team follows evidence-based clinical pathways to determine why wounds are not healing and then develops individual treatment plans, utilizing the most effective technologies available to provide maximum healing and relief.
“Between five and seven million Americans experience at least one form of a non-healing wound annually and the incidence of these wounds is increasing by approximately 10 percent each year,” said, Dr. Rodney Miller. “Many of these individuals suffer from wounds that refuse to heal despite conventional treatment. These wounds seldom involve a simple answer.”
The Wound Healing Center at Hamilton Memorial Hospital will provide a comprehensive approach to treating patients with non-healing wounds. The team features nurses and technicians with advanced training in wound care.
The Wound Healing Center will be open on Wednesday afternoons beginning June 17, 2020. For more information about wound care or to schedule an appointment, call 618.643.9444
