The Doctors Hospital of Laredo Wound Healing Center is a member of the Healogics network of over 600 Wound Care Centers® and offers highly specialized wound care to patients suffering from diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections and other chronic wounds which have not healed in a reasonable amount of time.
Advanced wound care modalities provided by our wound care experts include negative pressure wound therapy, total contact casting, bio-engineered tissues, biosynthetic dressings and growth factor therapies. The Center also offers hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which works by surrounding the patient with 100% oxygen to help progress the healing of the wound.
“We are extremely proud of this achievement,” says Rudy E Vasquez, Director. “Our team of knowledgeable physicians, techs and nurses continue to fulfill our mission of helping our community every day. We are excited to not only provide the community and our patients with high quality wound care services, but to be able to have not one, but two Certified Wound Specialists on staff. Their unparalleled knowledge and expertise make our center the premier destination for wound care in Laredo.”
