Wound Care Clinic: Overview
Wounds are a major burden on the healthcare. Wounds are one of the commonest conditions treated by the Plastic Surgeon.
Wounds can be acute or chronic. They usually happen following accidents and injuries resulting in cuts, abrasions or deeper wounds with loss of skin, soft tissue or deeper structures at times. Wounds can also develop following burns, which could be thermal, electric or chemical in nature. Chronic wounds can result from variety of conditions such as diabetes mellitus, varicose veins, peripheral vascular disease, infections, connective tissue disorders. These are often difficult to treat due to the complexity and associated systemic comorbidities.
Wounds can thus be simple, complex or complicated. Every wound requires timely attention and the appropriate corrective measures and intervention to ensure quick and safe wound healing. Complex wounds need multidisciplinary care for optimal healing.
