Woundcare services is very proud to be associated with La Vie Care. They specialise in the treatment of all kind of wounds eg: burn wounds, cancer wounds, insect bites, dog bites, venous ulcers, diabetic ulcers, amputated limbs, pressure ulcers, skin grafts and many more.
Woundcare services is part of a multi-disciplinary team and patients suffering from wound specific related problems are referred to either a Vascular Surgeon, Plastic Surgeon or a Medical practitioner. Treatment can be done as an out patient or when a patient is admitted to a facility. Treating doctors also receive weekly updates on the progress of the wounds.
The success of wound treatment lies in the following:
- a patient’s psychological condition;
- attitude and compliance in terms of the treatment;
- consistency of appointments;
- special diet
There has also been great success in maggot therapy, vac therapy and hyperbaric therapy.
Whether the patient is an in- or outpatient the following aspects of a patient’s treatment is taken into consideration:
- Vascular management
- Wound control
- Microbiological control
- Metabolic control
- Patient education
It is our commitment to treat a patient in the most respectful and professional manner.
