Arriving for Your First Visit: Personalized Wound Treatment
at Phoebe Putney

When you arrive at Phoebe Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center, our staff will evaluate your wound(s) and general health, as well as review your medical history. A blood test may be required and you may need special tests that give us information about blood flow and oxygen flow in the wound area.

Your personalized wound care healing program

When your test results are in, you will be provided with a treatment program based on your individual needs. This program will include regular visits to Phoebe's Wound Care Center to:

  • Provide treatment
  • Evaluate progress
  • Make any adjustments that may be needed

You (or your caregiver) will be given detailed instructions regarding home care, dressing (bandage) changes and protecting the wound from further injury.

You are a vital part of the program

Much of the success of your wound treatment depends on you. You must keep your appointments, follow directions carefully and watch your progress closely between visits. Any time you or your family members have questions our staff is available for you.
