Advanced Wound Care

Renown Health Advanced Wound Care provides specialized treatment for wound healing, ostomy care and lymphedema therapy. It is the region's largest facility of its kind and our team of certified physicians, nurses and therapists are uniquely qualified, experienced and dedicated to providing quality care for patients with acute and chronic wounds.

Wound Healing
Our team specializes in the healing of wounds caused by the following:

  • diabetes (neuropathy)
  • vascular diseases (blood vessel diseases)
  • radiation therapy (used during cancer treatment)
  • trauma
  • burns
  • pressure ulcers

Advanced wound healing techniques include:

  • Negative pressure therapy (controlled pressure to draw out fluid from a wound)
  • Biological skin substitutes (cell therapy to "jump start" a stalled wound)
  • Compression dressings and therapy (compression to reduce swelling in extremities)
  • Pulsatile irrigation (water delivered at high pressure to clean wounds)
  • Offloading techniques (padding or dressing to take pressure off a wounded area)
  • Surgical debridement (medical removal of dead or damaged tissue)

Ostomy Care
Advanced Wound Care is the only facility in the region to offer complete ostomy services including education for patients with an ostomy (used to reroute the contents of the bowel or bladder) and/ or fistulas (abnormal passageway from organs or vessels to the skin). Our staff offers assistance with pre-surgical markings, selection and fitting of medical bags for fecal containment, prevention and treatment of skin problems related to having an ostomy, the purchase of medical supplies and supportive care coordination to improve the quality of life for ostomy patients.

Lymphederma Therapy
Described as unusual swelling of extremities caused by a disruption or abnormal anatomy in the lymphatic system, lymphedema may develop spontaneously or occur following injury, surgery, radiation treatment, cancer or infection. Patient education and support for this chronic condition includes manual lymphatic drainage, skin care, compression garments and bandaging as well as exercise techniques - all with the goal of preventing wounds and improving lifestyle.

Hyberbaric Oxygen Therapy
This therapy increases a patient's wound healing treatment options. This state-of-the-art treatment enhances a patient's natural healing potential by delivering one hundred percent oxygen at pressures above that of the surrounding atmosphere. An elevated level of oxygen reaches oxygen deprived tissues such as infected or radiated tissues. Although not a substitute for antibiotics or the removal of dead or damaged tissue, hyperbaric oxygen therapy has proven to significantly aid in the healing of chronic or non-healing wounds by accelerating blood vessel formation.

Patient Referral
The patient's physician initiates the referral process by calling 775-982-5003. Once we receive a referral, the patient is contacted to schedule a comprehensive wound evaluation in order to identify all underlying causes and conditions of their wound. This evaluation may include the use of a technology called Transcutaneous Oxygen Monitoring (TCOM) to measure the oxygen available in the skin to support wound healing. Our specialists rely on these results, industry best practices and care management protocols to create an individualized treatment plan. In addition, the referring physician receives routine progress reports documenting wound healing and recovery expectations.

Insurance Coverage
Advanced Wound Care accepts most health insurance plans, including Medicare and Worker's Compensation. The amount of treatment approved by insurance varies according to the patient's medical condition and plan benefits. For those patients without insurance, payment for services may be determined on a sliding fee scale.
