Wound Care

Things You Need to Know About Wound Care

Wound care is not the most common procedure in interventional radiology but it does come with special attention and care. Our office understands how important it is for proper wound healing in patients that are slow to heal or are unable to heal due to certain diseases. If wounds are not managed properly, complications like meningitis, maggot infestation, cellulitis, squamous cell carcinoma, septic shock and more can form.
