Knowing when it is the time to go and see a doctor for you wound might seem difficult to determine, however here are a few signs that will let you know that you need to be seen by a medical professional.

  • If the bleeding from the wound does not stop after 20 minutes or does not stop when applying direct pressure to it, medical attention is needed.
  • You should also get medical attention if the wound is deeper than half an inch.

In our office, we can treat wounds through the use of topical medications as well as debridement, which is the removal of damaged tissue or foreign objects from a wound. If more specialized care is needed, we can also refer to other treatment options. Another part of the treatment and rehabilitation process is the education for the patient and family. Making sure that the patient and family are aware of the medical situation and are comfortable with how the recovery process will go, will make the overall experience much easier for both parties. Wounds can be different and unique to each individual, so developing the correct treatment and rehab process for them is crucial to the patient’s recovery.
