Decubitus and pressure sores are a major challenge in medicine for individuals with spinal cord injuries.
In our Outpatient Wound Unit, we have many years of experience with these problems.
In close interdisciplinary collaboration, we try to find an optimum solution for this type of problem, in each case tailored to the individual patient.
Regular wound consultations, some of which also take place in collaboration with colleagues in the Plastic Surgery Department, offer you, as our patient, the ideal support to resolve your problems. Our qualified specialists manage and lead this demanding work, applying their many years of experience and expert knowledge.
All relevant factors that affect progression are also taken into account in an interdisciplinary context to provide support to the overall process:
- Provision of aids, in particular regarding seating position and the supply of pads
- Ideal nutrition
- Bandaging techniques and materials
- Initiation of supporting therapies, such as lymph drainage
