Wound Care Services

​​​SSM Health Wound Centers specialize in treating acute and chronic hard-to-heal wounds. Many conditions can prevent a wound from healing, such as diabetes, vascular problems, medications, infections and poor nutrition.

A wound that will not heal creates increased risk for infection and more serious complications.

SSM Health Wound Centers follow national guidelines based on clinical evidence when treating and managing wounds. Our centers offer state-of-the-art wound treatment which improves quality of life, such as:
  • Advanced wound dressings
  • Transcutaneous oximetry to assess skin oxygen levels
  • Negative pressure dressings
  • Hyperbaric chamber therapy ​
  • Semi-synthetic skin grafts
  • Experienced staff who have specialized qualifications in wound care and vascular care
  • Patient education to manage the care of wounds and prevent wound recurrence
  • Ostomy-associated skin issues
