Wound Care

What We Do

St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea offers various treatment options for patients dealing with non-healing wounds. The wounds may be caused by injury or excess pressure during times of immobility, and may not heal rapidly for a variety of reasons:

  • Poor circulation because of vascular disease, diabetes, obesity, or smoking
  • Poor nutrition
  • Advancing age
  • Infection
  • Using inappropriate dressings or topicals

Treatments offered include:

  • Comprehensive evaluation
  • Sharp debridement
  • Photo documentation
  • Recommendations on appropriate dressings
  • Edema control
  • Patient and family education for care in the home environment

Who is eligible?

To receive treatment, you must first be evaluated and diagnosed by your physician. You will receive a prescription for a physical therapist to evaluate you and customize a program of exercises to address your specific needs.

If you need help finding a physician, please call our Physician Referral Line at 734-593-5899.
