Rehabilitation :: Wound Care
The CHOC Children’s Wound Care team provides follow-up outpatient care and treatment for patients with a variety of wounds and minor burns. In our special wound care clinic, our registered nurses, specially trained wound care physical therapists, and plastic surgeons both inpatients after discharge and new outpatients.
Children heal differently than adults and our therapists are trained to make the healing process as quick and pain free as possible while always working to create the best future results for the child. Wound care treatment begins with the initial evaluation and treatment plan and continues until healing is complete. As part of this process, we use top-of-the-line dressings that are proven safe for babies, children and young adults and work closely with plastic surgeons for complicated cases. In addition, the wound-care staff stays up-to-date on the latest treatments in wound healing and meet frequently to discuss cases and provide a smooth transition from inpatient to outpatient care.
The wound-care specialists at CHOC Children’s consult on a variety wound types including:
- Skin breakdown.
- Traumatic injuries.
- Surgical wounds.
- Pilonidal cysts.
- Pressure ulcers.
- Severe diaper rash.
