How to Start Healing 

Much of the success of your treatment depends on you. We’ll count on you to follow directions carefully and watch your progress closely. You’ll learn about caring for your wound at home including how to change dressings and how to protect yourself from further injuries. We’re always here to answer questions and give you the support you need to heal.

Your personal physician can refer you to the Baylor Garland Comprehensive Wound Center or you can make your appointment directly by calling 972.696.1234. When you call for your first appointment, we’ll ask you a few questions about your wound and your health in general.

Before beginning treatment, our team of wound care doctors on the medical staff at Baylor Garland and our nurses and therapists will thoroughly evaluate your wound and review your health and medical history. Tests might be conducted to tell us more about your blood flow and tissue oxygenation, as well as to determine if there is any infection present. We will develop a treatment program based on our assessment of your special needs.

Your program will involve weekly visits with your wound care physician at the Center for treatment. Your progress is documented and your plan of care is adjusted as necessary. Once your wound is healed, you’ll return to your doctor for follow-up care as well as on-going treatment for any related conditions such as diabetes or heart disease.
