WOUND CARE

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.
