Wound care

When wounds fail to heal, an underlying cause such as infection, uncontrolled diabetes, peripheral artery disease and other factors may be to blame. The comprehensive wound care center at HCA Houston Healthcare Tomball administers advanced treatment of chronic, non-healing wounds in a first-class, patient-centered setting.

We combine the latest technology with comprehensive, individualized treatment to promote wound healing for those suffering from chronic wounds. We specialize in the treatment of conditions including:

  • Non-healing ulcers or wounds including diabetic foot and lower extremity ulcers, venous insufficiency ulcers, pressure sores and arterial insufficiency/ischemic ulcers
  • Chronic osteomyelitis, or a bone infection that has not responded to traditional treatment
  • Failed or failing skin grafts and flaps
  • Surgical wounds that have not healed
  • Edema or lymphedema
  • Delayed soft tissue radiation injury

Our wound care team has acquired more than 50 years of experience in advanced wound care and hyperbaric treatment. Our staff includes an experienced team of advanced wound care specialists working together to create an optimal healing environment for our patients. This team includes physicians specializing in wound care, vascular, orthopedic, internal medicine, podiatry, and surgery. We also have nutritionists and registered nurses trained in wound care on staff.
