Appalachian Regional Healthcare System is excited to announce that The Wound Care Center will be moving to Watauga Surgical Group in September.
Wound care patients will no longer come to Watauga Medical Center for appointments. Beginning September 8, patients should go to Watauga Surgical Group, located at 965 State Farm Road in Boone. This location will be more convenient for patients with a faster check-in process.
Dealing with non-healing wounds that are a result of trauma, surgery, complications with diabetes or pressure ulcers, often require an aggressive multidisciplinary team approach. The wound care team is dedicated to restoring health and mobility to patients living with a persistent wound and their healing rates are 23% higher than the national average.
Wound care services include pre and post-operative education, stoma marking, total contact casting, compression treatment, negative pressure wound therapy, wound irrigation and debridement, skin grafts and more.
