Everyone occasionally suffers minor cuts, scrapes, and bruises. For most of us, these wounds are an inconvenience, but not a cause for concern. That’s not the case for almost seven million Americans whose wound-healing process is hampered by a chronic condition such as diabetes or multiple sclerosis, poor circulation, or long-term immobility. The Central Jersey Wound Treatment Center helps treat non-healing (chronic) wounds and infection, which can lead to more serious complications if not cared for properly.

Everyone occasionally suffers minor cuts, scrapes, and bruises. For most of us, these wounds are an inconvenience, but not a cause for concern. That’s not the case for approximately 5 million Americans whose wound-healing process is hampered by a chronic condition such as diabetes or multiple sclerosis, poor circulation, or long-term immobility. The Central Jersey Wound Treatment Center helps treat non-healing (chronic) wounds and infection, which can lead to more serious complications if not cared for properly.

SERVICES

The Central Jersey Wound Treatment Center provides a multidisciplinary approach to the diagnosis and treatment of chronic wounds using the most advanced technology and procedures.

On your first visit, our wound care specialists provide a thorough initial examination and appraisal, which may include diagnostic tests to determine why a wound hasn’t healed. Based on the results of this comprehensive assessment, we can develop a customized treatment and education plan that meets your needs.

The Central Jersey Wound Treatment Center has easy access to a wide range of resources and expertise, such as the registered dietitians and health coaches at the Star and Barry Tobias Health Awareness Center. Through the appropriate assessment of a patient’s general nutritional status, wound care plan, and related medical history, our experts can provide what basic nutrition and supplements may assist in the healing of chronic wounds.
The faster an injury heals, the less chance of a wound infection occurring. When engaging in physical activity, you will need to accommodate your wound with specific exercises that won’t hinder the injury. Our exercise physiologists at CentraState’s rehabilitation locations and the CentraState Fitness and Wellness Center integrate the proper exercises into your current care plan so you may remain as functional and independent as possible. Performing physical tasks each day will stimulate immune activity and boost anti-inflammatory effects in your body to help build and repair muscle tissue.

In addition to treating the wound itself, our staff is focused on prevention—educating patients and their caregivers on proper wound care and changes in nutrition or exercise that could enhance the healing process and prevent recurrences. As changes occur in your health status, team members will adapt the program to meet your individual needs.

Our systemic support through multiple disciplines, such as podiatry and general, vascular, plastic surgery and diabetes specialists, allows wound patients to focus on healing process.

TREATMENT METHODS

To achieve the fastest possible healing, we use a comprehensive approach to treatment and intervention that may include:

  • Removal of unhealthy tissue
  • Medications
  • Antibiotic therapy
  • Conventional and advanced wound dressings
  • Nutrition counseling
  • Education/prevention
  • Edema/Lymphedema therapy
  • Protective footwear
  • Skin substitutes

SEEKING CARE

If you have a sore or ulcer that hasn’t shown improvement or if the area hasn’t entirely healed within two months, you should speak with your primary care physician about specialized wound care treatment. A physician referral is not necessary to access the Central Jersey Wound Treatment Center unless your insurance requires it. Our team can gladly answer any questions you might have about a specific wound or about the center itself.
