Our Mission

West Coast Wound and Skin Care is committed to providing high quality care to individuals suffering with acute and chronic wounds and dermatological conditions.

Our care teams have delivered mobile wound care to those in nursing homes, home health or skilled nursing facilities for many years. We are excited to supplement the mobile services with clinic-based care for ambulatory patients. 

Treatment

Telemedicine

Virtual medical care. If an urgent appointment is requested, videoconferencing is set up to meet and speak with your provider. You can easily ask questions and receive quality medical care.

Skin Grafting

A piece of organ, tissue from an animal and even from the placenta and is transplanted into the affected area. This causes blood vessels to grow from the tissue and bond the piece to the affected area.

Surgical Debridement

Removing damaged tissue to promote healing and prevent infection.

Biopsies

Definitive diagnostic test to evaluate the cause of the non-healing wound by removing a small piece of the tissue.

Cryotherapy

The infected area is treated by freezing the area, thereby, accelerating the body’s natural healing process, reducing inflammation, renewing skin and blood cells and reducing muscle and joint tenderness.

Compression Therapy

Adding pressure with wraps, contracting areas of restricted flow, allowing the veins to loosen. This loosening decreases venous pressure, reduces edema and aids the body in moving blood around.

Wound Care

Venous Ulcers

Usually occur on the legs and are associated with discomfort, itching, and swelling. There could also be discolored or thickened skin surrounding the ulcer and it may yield a foul-smelling discharge.

Diabetic Ulcers

These develop on the foot of a person with diabetes due to repeated pressure from walking without normal sensation. The ulcers do not usually cause pain but can lead to additional issues.

Traumatic Injuries

Traumatic wounds are defined as acute (ripped or torn skin), cuts/lacerations, or puncture wounds (penetrating, stabbing, gunshot) which cause damage to the skin and underlying tissues.

Pressure Ulcers

Also known as “bedsores” or “pressure ulcers”, these develop after the affected skin area becomes starved by oxygen and nutrients due to bad circulation as pressure is blocking the flow of blood. Usually, people who are at the hospital start to develop a pressure ulcer as they are in a pro-longed position in bed for days without movement.

Surgical Wounds

A surgical wound is any incision that was made by a surgeon that has created wounds or not healed properly. A surgical wound can also be formed during plastic surgery procedures that includes a drain placed during surgery.

Burns

When heat is inflicted on the skin and causes severe damage. Burns can range from 1st to 4th degree. 1st-skin is red but not blistered. 2nd-blisters and some thickening. 3rd- widespread thickening and a leathery white appearance. 4th-most severe and burns to the bone.

Arterial (Ischemic) Ulcers

Caused by poor delivery of the blood depriving arteries, blood vessels and tissues of oxygen and forming an open wound. They’re characterized by a punched-out look usually in a round shape and well defined. The base of the wound typically does not bleed, and is yellow, brown, grey or black in color.

Cancerous Ulcers

These ulcers are caused by skin cancer or the spread of cancer from elsewhere.
