Wound

Not all wounds heal with traditional medical treatment. Many people experience chronic wounds caused by diabetes, infection, injury or burns that can last for months. But that doesn’t mean that you have to live with an open sore. Vidant Health knows how to care for people with hard-to-heal wounds, and we have four facilities that specialize in wound care. We are part of a nationwide network of Wound Healing Centers that heal thousands of patients each year.

Vidant Health Wound Healing Centers are located in Greenville, Ahoskie, Edenton and Windsor. Each one is staffed with highly skilled doctors, nurses and other providers – including certified wound specialists. They will thoroughly evaluate your wound and review your health and medical history to better understand your situation.

Because we understand that every wound is different, we’ll work with you and your personal doctor to come up with a treatment plan to meet your specific needs. We have access to the latest treatment options, including special dressings and wraps, debridement (removing dead or damaged tissue), biologically engineered skin substitutes and hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Our Greenville location is accredited by the Undersea & Hyperbaric Medical Society for hyperbaric oxygen treatment of wounds and radionecrosis.

Why Vidant?

  • We have the skill and knowledge you need. Our Wound Care Centers are staffed with highly skilled providers who have received specialized wound care training. We follow a comprehensive Clinical Pathway method of discovering the exact cause of your wound and successfully treating and healing wounds that have not been helped with traditional care.
  • You are part of the team. Not only will we explain the details about your wound and how we are treating it, we’ll also teach you how to care for your wound at home. You’ll learn about changing dressings and protecting yourself from further injuries.
  • We work with your current doctors. If you suffer from chronic wounds, it’s quite likely that you have other health conditions that have either helped cause the wound, affect its healing or both. Conditions like diabetes, burns, poor circulation, obesity and even poor nutrition can all be related to wound care. We are happy to consult with the doctors you are already seeing for these health issues and welcome their participation in your care.
  • You’ll receive expert care close to home. With four specialized Wound Care Centers located in eastern North Carolina, you’ll enjoy the convenience of not having to travel out of our region in order to have access to state-of-the-art treatments like hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

With the specialized wound care available from Vidant Health, there’s no reason to live with an open sore. Get ready to heal.
