Wound Care and Debridement at USA Health
A clean wound provides the critical foundation for recovery from any external burn injury. At USA Health, we offer the most advanced tools, technology and experience for optimal wound care.
The medical term for wound care is debridement. It involves removing damaged tissue or foreign objects from an affected wound. For the most serious wounds, debridement must be done daily; for less acute burns, it must be done every few days until the wound is stable and healing. Soap and water may be adequate to clean less severe wounds, but sometimes deeper cleaning is required.
Whatever the severity of your injury, our experienced specialists can provide the care you need on an inpatient or outpatient basis.
