The innovative Providence Tarzana Wound Center is designed specifically for evaluation and treatment of chronic, non-healing wounds.
Chronic wounds are sometimes caused by trauma resulting from accidents and falls, but are often associated with underlying medical conditions, such as diabetes, clogging of the arteries, and diseases of the veins. Eighty-six thousand amputations each year are the result of foot ulcers that plague one out of every seven people with diabetes.
Many physicians' offices are not equipped with the special supplies and medications used to treat different types of problem wounds. In addition, a wound that does not heal quickly or appropriately may signal a serious, underlying medical problem. At the Providence Tarzana Wound Center, our physicians specialize in sorting out the underlying causes that keep chronic wounds from healing.
Using advanced technologies and interventions, the physicians and staff at the Providence Tarzana Wound Center effectively treat the most difficult wounds and manage the individual needs of each patient.
At the Providence Tarzana Wound Center, our commitment to the care and treatment of wounds includes:
- Full diagnostic evaluation
- Individualized plans of care developed with the patient (or his or her designee) and the Providence Tarzana Wound Center multidisciplinary team
- Communication with referring physicians and primary care physicians to insure continuity of care
- Evidence-based practice, validated by research
- Referral to other medical, surgical or rehabilitation services, as needed
We encourage patients to seek a referral to the Providence Tarzana Wound Center from their primary care physician. We also accept self-referrals. If you would like to schedule an appointment at the Providence Tarzana Wound Center, please call 818-757-8839.
