Wound Treatment Options 

The Baylor Scott & White – Garland Comprehensive Wound Center offers advanced treatment options to help your wound heal. Your wound care physician and care team will determine the appropriate therapies for you and recommend a course of treatment. Some of the other treatment options available at the Center include:

  • Bio-Engineered Tissue Substitutes: Materials made in a laboratory used to cover open wounds. These materials are used to reduce bacterial build up, reduce pain or achieve the proper moisture balance within the wound.
  • Debridement: Surgical removal of dead (necrotic) skin
  • Dressings and Wraps: Used by wound care physicians to facilitate wound healing. These can include compression stockings for venous leg ulcers, special products for wound odor control and materials that promote naturally occurring tissue growth factors.
  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
  • Negative Pressure Wound Therapy: The controlled application of sub-atmospheric pressure to a wound using specialized equipment to intermittently or continuously convey negative pressure to promote wound healing. Negative pressure therapy removes fluids and infectious materials, helps protect the wound environment, helps promote blood and oxygen flow and helps draw together wound edges.
  • Transcutaneous Oxygen Monitoring (TCPO2): A diagnostic tool that measures the amount of oxygen present in the tissue in and around the wound site. TCPO2 monitoring can also be a predictor of whether hyperbaric oxygen treatment can be effective in stimulating wound healing.
  • Physicians on the medical staff at Baylor Scott & White – Garland offer care management from initial diagnosis or second opinion and consultation through follow-up care.

If you are diagnosed with a non-healing wound, your personal physician or a Baylor Scott & White – Garland clinical coordinator can make a referral to a physician on the medical staff at Baylor Scott & White – Garland. Patients can find a physician by calling 1.800.4BAYLOR (422-9567) or by searching our online physician directory.
