Wound Debridement & Wound Dressing in Greenville & Dallas, TX
Wound debridement & wound dressing is essential to wound healing. It may never heal if a wound is not correctly debrided and dressed. Debris and bacteria can get into a wound that is not debrided and dressed.
Wound debridement is the disposal of dead or infected skin tissue from the surface of a wound to help the wound heal.
Without debridement, it may be impossible for many wounds to heal. Severe or non-healing wounds may be trapped in the first stage of healing and unable to recover. Dead or infected tissue may cover the wound, preventing the wound from healing. The wound can start healing again when the dead or infected tissue is removed.
Wound debridement is the first step to take when treating non-healing wounds before the wound is dressed. Wound debridement helps healthy tissue growth and reduces scarring and complications.
