Wound Care

When the body’s natural healing process is delayed, a wound can become an ongoing medical issue. Many factors influence the rate at which a wound heals. Poor circulation, inadequate nutrition, chronic diseases and excessive bacteria at the wound site can all slow the healing process. Without proper treatment, chronic wounds can lead to deterioration of surrounding tissue, infection, gangrene and even amputation.

Throughout Tampa Bay, BayCare has centers dedicated to the treatment of slow healing and non-healing wounds. The first step is a comprehensive evaluation by our wound care professionals to obtain your medical history, examine your wound and take initial wound measurements.

Many insurance programs require pre-authorization for this initial visit. Staff at our wound care centers will work with your physician’s office to obtain any necessary pre-approvals.

Wound Care Centers

Our Wound Care Centers offer specialized outpatient care for patients with chronic, non-healing wounds that have been present for several weeks, and show little or no sign of improvement with standard treatment.
