Wound Care

 

Most wounds heal on their own but if you have one that just won’t heal or reopens, you may need the specialized treatment provided by Conway Medical Center. With leading edge dressing techniques and advanced wound care technology, we’ll encourage your body’s natural processes to help you heal faster.

Care for Your Wound

At CMC, we are staffed with highly skilled providers who have received specialized wound care training.  In addition to the various treatments we provide, we also help you understand your wound, how we are treating it, and we teach you how to care for your wound at home. You’ll learn about changing dressings and protecting yourself from further injuries. With the specialized wound care available from CMC, you’ll finally be ready to heal.
