Wound Surgery

Surgery may be necessary if the healing process has stalled with traditional wound treatment options. If surgical care for your wound is necessary, then you may be referred to a general or vascular surgeon at Glenwood Regional Medical Center. The decision to pursue surgery will require approval from your primary physician, as well as an outside consultant (in some cases).


Revascularization refers to the process of restoring blood flow to a damaged organ or area of skin. This procedure may be used to treat diabetic ulcers, gangrene, or other chronic wounds.

Deep Debridement

Patients with wounds that are unresponsive to lesser debridement techniques (such as sharp debridement and enzymatic debridement) may undergo deep debridement. Deep debridement is a more invasive surgical procedure, which can be more effective for treating difficult-to-heal wounds.

Skin Grafting

Skin grafting surgery is a common procedure used for treating slow- and non-healing wounds. In the procedure, a thin layer of healthy skin is removed from a donor site (typically from the buttock or thigh). This skin is positioned onto the debrided and cleaned wound site, where it is applied using sutures and/or surgical glue. The area is then covered with a bandage for protection, and the body begins the process of self-healing.
