“Wounds are common and the role of good quality wound care cannot be over-stressed”.
Dr.Bassi worked in a Wound Care Clinic gaining insight and valuable experience. He offers simple wound care to all his patients. He evaluates his patient to determine and treat the underlying cause of the wound(s) to hasten wound healing. He uses the right wound treatment including a combination of cleansing the wound, minor debridement, use of appropriate dressing and oral or topical antibiotic as needed.
He advises and educates his patients so they can self-manage most of the wound care at home. He follows them closely at the clinic or via telemedicine to make sure they attain complete wound healing, if possible.
Despite his best efforts, if Dr.Bassi feels the wound is not healing, he arranges for referral to a wound care specialist/ surgeon or hospital for further special treatments.
