Treating Chronic Wounds

All of Dr. Brem's wound patients are treated with multiple therapies that include state-of-the-art wound treatments—based on analysis of his or her wound tissue—as well as comprehensive care of the patient’s underlying medical issues. Through the integrated, simultaneous use of various regenerative medicine techniques, even chronic wounds can be encouraged to heal. The key elements of this approach include:

Patient evaluation... starting with a comprehensive examination by a multidisciplinary medical team. Read more.

Treating related medical conditions... that are negatively affecting the wound's ability to heal. Treating these underlying conditions is an essential part of the healing process. Read more.

Debridement of wound tissue... a step that involves surgically removing (debriding) any dead, diseased or damaged tissue that is preventing the wound from healing. Read more.

Treating infection... by first testing the wound for possible bacterial and fungal infections and then treating any such infections with the appropriarte antibiotics and other medications. Read more.

Employing regenerative medicine... including cutting-edge growth factors and other medications that stimulate healing by encouraging growth of new tissue. Read more.

Hyperbaric oxygen treatments... which can support the healing process in some patients by promoting oxygenization of wound tissue. Read more.

Biological analysis of the wound... using tissue samples taken from the patient during debridement. By studying the wound's pathology, Dr. Brem's team can identify the most effective treatment approach. Read more.

Monitoring the healing process... to ensure that the selected treatment plan is working, and that the healing process remains on track. Read more.
