Wound Care / Infectious Disease
Chronic wounds, such as diabetic ulcers, infections or severe inflammation, among others, require professional medical attention for proper treatment. Moreover, conditions such as diabetes and peripheral vascular disease compromise the integrity of the skin, which can make ulcer formations quite common.
Garden Gate Health Care Facility in Cheektowaga is a WNY leader in wound care rehabilitation. We are pleased to have a unique affiliation with the Center for Skin Integrity, which is located on our campus. The Center operates under the direction of Dr. Corstiaan Brass, board certified physician in infectious disease and wound care management.
Dr. Brass works with a team of specialists to provide comprehensive wound care treatment and management of coexisting medical diseases. Advantages to this team approach include:
- Elimination of delays in obtaining care from several specialists
- Faster delivery of medical services
- Seamless coordination of care between physicians
- No duplication of services
- Cost efficient
We have found that our patients are much happier when they are cared for by a team of physicians working together versus working with a number of individual physicians.
Our wound therapy program utilizes a variety of advanced techniques such as:
- Electrical Stimulation
- Whirlpool Therapy
One of the most important aspects of wound care is setting long-term goals and exercise plans for healthy living. Our team will work with you to develop a realistic plan for managing diabetes, eating healthy, controlling weight, lowering your blood pressure and cholesterol levels, eliminating bad habits and managing stress. This will not only help increase your physical fitness, but also may reduce the risk of future issues and improve your overall health.
If you are in need of wound care, we encourage you to visit our facility, speak with your doctor and request a WRITTEN ORDER to The McGuire Group.
At The McGuire Group, we’re devoted to providing you with focused, compassionate care and above all, an optimal quality of life.
