Parkridge opens Advanced Wound Care and Vascular Center




Parkridge Medical Center has opened Advanced Wound Care & Vascular Center to provide comprehensive therapeutic options, including hyperbaric oxygenation therapy, to patients suffering from chronic and hard-to-heal wounds.

Located in a newly renovated 4,577-square-foot space, the center offers services aimed toward preventing limb loss and promoting healing for diabetic ulcers and the full spectrum of hard-to-heal wounds, including arterial ulcers, burns, complex soft tissue wounds, infected wounds, non-healing surgical wounds, pressure ulcers, traumatic wounds, vasculitic ulcers and venous stasis ulcers.

David Redd, M.D., will serve as medical director of the center. Susan Nielson is clinic director.

To treat chronic and hard-to-heal wounds, the multidisciplinary team will leverage evidence-based treatments, including bioengineered skin substitutes, compression therapy, debridement, hyperbaric oxygenation therapy, negative pressure wound therapy and ostomy care.

Advanced Wound Care & Vascular Center is on the Parkridge Medical Center campus, 2333 McCallie Avenue in Plaza Two.
