Non-Healing Surgical Wounds

Non-healing surgical wounds are a serious problem that can occur after any type of surgery. The wound may appear to be healing at first, but then it suddenly starts to get worse. The wound may become infected, start to bleed, or develop an unpleasant odor. In some cases, the wound may even start to heal and then open up again. Non-healing surgical wounds can be very painful and can make it difficult for the patient to recover from surgery. If the wound is not treated properly, it can lead to serious complications such as blood poisoning or gangrene. Non-healing surgical wounds are a medical emergency and should be treated by a qualified healthcare professional as soon as possible.

Causes

Poor wound healing depends on the procedure, medical conditions, and other elements. These factors can increase the risk of complications.

  • Skin-based bacteria or from other areas of the body
  • Insufficiency in the immune system
  • Conditions like diabetes, for instance, are medically induced.
  • Habits of life, such as smoking or eating a poor diet
  • Advanced age
  • Being overweight
  • Emergency surgery
  • Intestinal surgeries or abdominal abdominoplasty (bacterial infection)
  • Surgery lasting over two hours

Symptoms

The symptoms of a non-healing wound will depend on the area affected and severity. The surgeon and the care team will know the typical healing process. They check injuries for evidence of signs of infection and other complications.

Signs of infection may include:

  • Fever
  • Pus or drainage
  • Redness and pain may increase.
  • Odor of foul
  • Wound feels hot
  • Dry or deep appearance

Helping You Start the Healing Process

Most wounds heal when adequately cared for; however, sometimes, the healing process slows and can cause a persistent and non-healing wound. Things like age or low blood circulation, diabetes, and many other ailments can cause problems with healing. Injuries that don’t heal could cause pain and restricted mobility, limiting the quality of your life.

Non-healing or chronic wounds that are not healing are a significant health risk, particularly for the elderly who suffer from other health issues. Therefore, coordinating efforts to assess and treat wounds is crucial. We specialize in the treatment of wounds that aren’t healing. This is caused by:

  • Burns
  • Diabetes
  • Osteomyelitis (bone infection)
  • Ostomy
  • Kidney disease
  • Peripheral Vascular disease
  • Soft tissue radiation injury
  • Pressure sores
  • Steroid dependence
  • Trauma
  • Venous insufficiency (problems in leg veins that send the flow of blood to the heart)
  • Wounds that are of arterial, venous, or lymphatic origin<

Our Approach to Your Care

Our specialists in wound care perform several diagnostic tests to assess the condition of your wound and you by focusing on the many aspects that affect the healing of wounds. Further tests may be needed to collect information about tissue oxygenation, nutritional status, and infections. We collaborate with other specialists to design a wound treatment plan that addresses any underlying issues you may suffer from and determine the most effective methods to help your wound heal. The aim of treatment isn’t only to treat your wound and prevent an occurrence, keep your mobility and avoid any further complications.

Treatment Options

The evaluation of wounds may involve taking samples of the fluid left in the wound. Our expert doctor will assess the wound and examine the symptoms. Most complications happen in the first 30 days. Be sure to report any symptoms to our doctor or primary care provider.

Complex Health Care Solutions offers various medical and surgical treatments for wounds that are not healing. Techniques for healing include:

The biomechanical corrective surgery procedure relieves eye pressure areas and repositions the foot.

Bioengineered skin is an option that uses skin substitutes by a biological process based on the components of healthy skin.

Debridement is the removal of damaged or infected tissue to enhance the healing capacity of the rest of the tissue.

Gait evaluation analyzes how you walk or stand to find pressure and possible ulceration areas.

Diabetic shoe service assesses your needs for special, prescribed shoes that reduce the chance of wounds or injuries caused by the condition known as diabetic neuropathy (nerve damage).

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) provides oxygen to the wound by breathing 100 % oxygen through a specific chamber, increasing blood flow to areas affected for faster healing.

Negative pressure wound therapy employs the closure dressing with a vacuum to eliminate fluid via suction, lower the risk of infection, and increase blood flow.

Microsurgical free flap tissue transfer uses microsurgery to move tissues from one part of the body to an alternate location of

Prosthetic devices increase mobility by providing an artificial limb where an arm or another extremity is lost or amputated.

Skin grafting places substitute skins on an open wound or burn to replace missing skin or provide a temporary wound covering.

Total contact casting requires fitting an un-removable cast that protects the affected limb.

Soft tissue reconstruction replaces damaged tissue to create contours and enhance the appearance.

Non-healing surgical wounds must be checked closely at every stage. It is essential to follow our doctor’s and our healthcare provider’s instructions to take care of your wounds at home.
