Wound Care Services

BHS Wound Care's experienced staff employs a variety of leading-edge treatments and services to effectively assess, prevent and heal wounds. Our comprehensive services are carefully matched to provide the best care and outcomes for your specific wounds.

Some of the wound types we frequently treat include:

  • Diabetes Wound - The body’s ability to heal itself is impaired in people with diabetes, increasing their risk of infection. Seeking medical attention for cuts and blisters is advised.
  • Infected Wound - Infections can turn a small cut into something deadly. We have tools designed for cleaning infected wounds.
  • Skin Wound - Skin wounds should be cleaned immediately to avoid infection. Depending on what you cut yourself on, you may require a shot to avoid serious diseases like Tetanus
  • Surgical Wound - A wound from surgery should be treated as soon as possible. If the surgery resulted in damage, the area needs to be examined for any other mistakes that may have occurred.
  • Ulcer - Ulcers are very painful and difficult to get rid of without professional medical help.
