Conditions We Treat

At Ohio Valley Hospital’s The Wound Care Center®, we offer treatments on a wide variety of wounds.

These Include:

Diabetic Foot Ulcers

An open sore or wound that appears on the bottom of the foot of some diabetes patients. Infections and ulcer-related complications can develop.

Pressure Ulcers

Also known as bed sores, Pressure Ulcers can develop from spending too much time in one position, where your skin is constantly rubbing against something else.

Venous Insufficiency Ulcers

Also known as a Stasis Ulcer, they can be caused by poor blood circulation in the legs. While they have many differences to Ischemic Ulcers, one of the tell-tale signs is that they are often shallow on the skin, and located on the foot or lower ankle.

Neuropathic Ulcers

A callus on a foot (commonly a diabetic foot) where the patient feels no pain due to Neuropathy (nerve damage) and therefore allows the callus to become an ulcer.

Ischemic Ulcers

Often located on the lower ankle or foot, these ulcers are caused by poor blood flow. This is a very thick ulcer that may cause pain while you sleep.

Vasculitis

An inflammation of your blood vessels.

Surgical Wounds

Traumatic Wounds

Burns

We also help other chronic, non-healing wounds. If you are unsure as to whether your wound qualifies as a chronic, non-healing wound, please call one of our offices to make an appointment. You do not need a doctor referral, and our Wound Care Center® is covered by most forms of insurance!
