Services

Using a planned, systematic approach, including consideration of all factors that may affect wound healing, the Center's staff treats four primary wound types:

  • Venous Stasis Ulcers
  • Diabetic Foot Ulcers
  • Ischemic Ulcers
  • Stage III and IV Pressure Ulcers

Wound Care Services

Wound care diagnostic and therapeutic steps may include:

  • Assessment
  • Infection control
  • Debridement (removing dead tissue to promote healing)
  • Application of appropriate dressings
  • Bioengineered skin and collagen products
  • Occupational and physical therapy
  • Patient, family and/or caretaker education

Ostomy Care

Ostomy surgery is a procedure that creates an opening in the abdomen called a stoma. Whether temporary or permanent, ostomy surgery (e.g. colostomy, ileostomy, urostomy, ileal conduit) results in an alteration of bodily function. Our staff are experts in the assessment and evaluation of ostomies.

Our ostomy care services include:

  • Teaching and counseling before and after surgery
  • Stoma site selection
  • Post-operative skin and stoma assessment and management
  • Selection and teaching of appropriate appliance/pouch techniques
  • Patient and family education

Diabetic Foot Care

Diabetes can be dangerous to your feet. Diabetes causes nerve damage and decreased blood flow in your feet, leaving them less sensitive to pain, and less able to heal in the event of even a minor injury such as a cut or bruise.

That’s why the Middlesex Hospital Wound and Ostomy Center has introduced our Diabetic Foot Care Program. This service provides:

  • Initial risk screening
  • Routine foot and nail care
  • Appropriate referrals to other medical specialties such as podiatry, vascular surgery, and diabetic footwear
