What to expect from the first appointment

Patients are mostly referred by their primary care physician, but a referral is not always necessary to make an appointment. 病人接受彻底的诊断检查,以确定你的伤口类型和造成伤口的潜在问题. 最初的预约包括一个全面的评估,以确定伤口的病因, the appropriate classification and size of the wound, 患者的整体健康状况和患者接受所需治疗的能力.

Based on the evaluation, 一个定制的治疗计划,以优化治疗最适合解决病人的需要. 伤口的大小和深度在初次就诊时记录,并在每次后续就诊时再次记录. Some of the diagnostic modalities which may be used include:
