WOUND CARE

Dr. Graff Manages and Treats Chronic or Non-Healing Wounds

At Dr. Graff's Foot, Ankle & Wound Care Facility located in Plano TX, we believe the best results are obtained for our patients when we implement the close collaboration and combined efforts of our multidisciplinary team. We bring together our expert team for the treatment of acute and chronic or non-healing wounds, diabetic wounds, pressure ulcers, arterial ulcers and infected wounds. This allows us to deliver a superior level of support for both wound treatment and limb salvage patients.

Our Philosophy of Care

We have a distinct philosophy of care that is rooted in our commitment to our patients in need of wound healing. We are dedicated to offering optimal care while giving our patients the dignity and respect they deserve. We go above and beyond to accommodate our patients’ physical, emotional, and spiritual needs, as we understand that this is an integral part of the healing process.

Our team also believes that proactively identifying and addressing wound healing problems within our dedicated clinical center, we can better optimize outcomes for our patients in an affordable manner.

AGGRESSIVE HEALING WITH A GENTLE TOUCH

With input from physicians in medical specialties such as wound healing, infectious disease, podiatry, internal medicine and vascular surgery, our wound treatment and care team strives to help each patient reach a high level of independence and functionality.

hyperberic-oxygen-therapyUnder the guidance Dr. Jeremiah Graff, our wound treatment and care teams include nurses with additional training in advanced wound healing and hyperbaric oxygen therapy (or HBOT).
The most important members of our treatment team are the patient and his or her loved ones. Because we believe knowledge is power, we give patients and families the information they need to be active participants in the recovery process -- both in making decisions about the plan of care and in setting goals and working to meet them.

ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY IN A COMFORTING ENVIRONMENT

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a non invasive medical treatment that increases the amount of oxygen in a patient's blood. By surrounding the patient with 100 percent oxygen in a pressurized environment, the chamber stimulates circulation and in many cases, promotes faster and more extensive healing than traditional therapies alone. Our wound treatment team utilizes an aggressive approach to healing that incorporates the latest technologies in wound healing, including:

• Negative pressure wound therapy
• Surgical debridement
• Compression therapy
• Bio-engineered skin grafting
• Prescription growth factors
• Edema management
• Non-Invasive vascular assessment
• Hyperbaric oxygen therapy

The wound care clinic participates in the development, validation and implementation of emerging wound healing technologies. These specialized wound therapies can aid in wound closure, new tissue growth, wound tissue regeneration and much more.
