For most people, wound healing is a natural, uneventful process. For some, it can become a complex medical problem requiring specialized medical treatment.

If you suffer with a hard-to-heal wound such as pressure ulcers (sores), diabetic foot ulcers, surgical wounds, wounds caused by infections, traumatic wounds, and wounds due to circulatory problems, Billings Clinic's Wound Healing Center may be able to help.

Our wound care specialists provide a comprehensive approach for the management of complex wound healing. Each patient receives an individualized plan of care to help heal these complicated wounds.

Wound Care Specialists

Our team of specialists have advanced training in wound management.  The Wound Healing Center consists of these specialists:

  • An infectious disease specialist
  • Three podiatrists
  • A vascular surgeon
  • A nurse practitioner
  • Wound care nurses trained in the care of chronic wounds and medical assistants. 

The Wound Healing specialists are committed to providing comprehensive care. In addition, your primary care physician is an integral part of the wound management team and will be communicated with regularly during your treatment.  

Wounds We Treat

Types of Treatment

  • Simple dressing changes
  • Vacuum assisted closure - applies sub-atmospheric pressure directly to the wound site and increases blood flow to aid in healing
  • Topical growth factors - gels or creams applied to a wound that stimulates healing
  • Debridement - a procedure where dead tissue is removed so the remaining viable tissue can adequately heal
  • Bioengineered skin substitute - a graft containing health agents that is place directly on the wound surface to promote healing
  • Compression therapy - the use of a range of compression therapies with varying levels of pressure to improve the circulation of blood
  • Coming Fall of 2017 - Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy: two state-of-the-art outpatient, monoplaced hyperbaric chambers that deliver 100% oxygen under elevated pressure to the patient's full body.

The Wound Healing team also provides referral resources for physical therapy to assist with lymphedema and venous insufficiency as well as referral resources for vascular wounds.
