When complications arise with surgical incisions, Tower Wound Care Center can help. Here, our doctors are trained to ensure the proper healing of all wounds, even those from surgery. Patients can visit three locations in Encino, Los Angeles, and Santa Monica, CA.
Surgical wounds are usually meant to heal on their own, but infections can occur at the surgical incision and opening of the sutures. The office will work closely with the surgeons that patients are using and work toward a quick closure of these surgical wounds. After surgery, a wound can become infected and often the incision will open. When treating these, the infected tissue will be removed surgically and frequently the office will apply the Wound VAC device over the incision, actively draining the wound.
Complex foot wounds are usually considered to be those with bone exposure. These types of wounds will often require the use of a muscle flap or free flap with a skin graft. For example, a gangrenous foot would be managed with surgical excision of the dead tissues, an ultrasound debridement, and the placement of the Wound VAC device over the bones. This helps to form healthy granulation tissue. A skin graft using a skin substitute will also be required with this type of wound.
