We help you get back on your feet and back to the things you love!
As a member of Wound Care Centers, Inc., Nyack Hospital’s Wound Care Center, is a leader in the treatment of chronic, non-healing wounds.
If you are suffering from a non-healing wound, you are not alone!
Every year, chronic wounds caused by diabetes, poor circulation and other conditions keep 3 to 5 million Americans just like you from doing the things they love. Our experienced team of doctors and nurses is dedicated to treating wounds, including many that have resisted healing after months and years of traditional treatment. It's all we do. And our average healing rate of 94% after 32 days shows that we do it well.
Your First Visit
When you come in, our friendly staff will evaluate your wound, your general health, and your medical history. Depending on your situation, you may also require additional tests that are non-invasive and provide information about blood flow in the wound area.
Your Healing Program
When your test results are back, we will develop a treatment program based on your individual needs. This program will include regular visits to the Wound Care Center® to provide treatment, evaluate progress and make any changes that might be needed to improve the healing process.
We will work closely with you throughout your entire treatment program. You (or your caregiver) will be provided detailed instructions on home care, nutritional recommendations, dressing changes and protecting the wound from further injury
You are a Vital Part of the Program
Much of the success of your treatment depends on you. The rate of healing success increases significantly when you keep your appointments, follow directions carefully and watch your progress closely between visits.
Any time you or your caregiver have questions, our staff is available. In fact, we encourage you to ask questions.
The Wound Care Center Works with Your Doctor
The Wound Care Center works with your personal doctor, just like any other medical specialist. We will discuss your treatment program with your doctor and keep him or her updated on your progress, unless instructed otherwise. Remember, you will need to keep seeing your doctor for routine medical care.
