Patients with wounds that have not healed within one month of treatment are referred to the wound care team for further evaluation and treatment. Our providers assess the wound healing process and may add new therapy modalities including skin substitute therapy and negative pressure therapy to enhance healing. The wound care team offers many wound dressing options that can be tailored to the needs of the patient. For more information about wound care at Virginia Mason, call (253) 874-1775.
