Wound Care in Warrensburg, MO

Advanced Wound Center at WMMC

When you have a wound that is persistent or slow to heal, you need advanced wound care help. The Advanced Wound Center at Western Missouri Medical Center uses a full complement of tools to heal your wound – whether you’ve had it for weeks, months or even years.

We treat multiple types of wounds including diabetic ulcers, venous and arterial ulcers, pressure sores, traumatic wounds, non-healing surgical wounds and post-radiation wounds.

The vast majority of our patients can be healed in just a few weeks, even though they may have had their wounds for a long time. To accomplish this we utilize advanced treatments such as weekly debridements, advanced dressings and compression, bioengineered skin substitutes and rigid leg casts for off-loading wounds. In addition, some patients can benefit from hyperbaric oxygen therapy, where they enter a pressurized chamber and breathe 100 percent oxygen for two hours a day, five days a week.

We are proud to say that our wound care center is designated as a National Center of Clinical Excellence and has received the Healogics President’s Circle Award (one of a select 34 centers, out of 800).
