Texas Children’s Wound Care – one of only a few in the country, and the first and only one of its kind in Texas – is a comprehensive center where patients can have a variety of wounds evaluated and treated by an experienced, multidisciplinary team of dedicated medical, surgical, nursing and advanced practice providers.
The team uses evidence-based, standardized treatment protocols – which are under constant scientific scrutiny – to develop individualized treatment plans for each patient. These care plans take into account factors such as wound origin and location, as well as patient and family lifestyle, to determine the best approach to maintenance and to prevent future wounds. Additionally, data from each case is carefully analyzed with the dual goals of improving clinical processes and ensuring care protocols provide the best possible outcomes.
Experts in Wound Care currently see patients from across the Texas Children’s system at our three hospital locations, providing high-quality care for a wide range of conditions, including:
Deep pressure wounds and ulcers
Fragile skin and other skin issues
Gastrostomy or other tube issues
Soft tissue infections
Thermal skin injuries (that do not meet criteria for burn transfer)
