Wound Care in Falls City

Vascular Wound Care


Specialized Care When You Need it Most

When you need to have specialized care to help heal a wound in your arms or legs, your primary care provider will refer you to a wound specialist.

This type of doctor may try to help treat the underlying cause of the wound. Their goal is to get your wound healed and alleviate your pain. However, sometimes a finger or toe has to be amputated. That is usually after other treatment options haven’t worked.

It is not something you want to have done, necessarily, but knowing you can get that done at home, and save a long car ride home, is worth it.

Service Highlights

  • Wound debridements
  • Amputations – fingers or toes

What We Treat

Community Medical Center can perform most wound care and minor surgeries. We can also perform pre-operative testing (Physicals, EKG, blood work, if applicable). Any of your follow up visits after a major surgery can also be done right here close to home.

What To Expect

  • Please arrive 15 -30 minutes prior to your appointment.
  • You will check in with our admissions team. Please have your identification (Driver’s license or ID card) and a current copy of your insurance card. The admission staff will direct to the Outpatient Department.
  • Each specialist has their own forms they want you to fill out. While we do have your information, their clinics have different information and questions they will ask you. We are working on online forms for your convenience.
  • When the staff member takes you back to your exam room, they will take your weight (we know, none of us like it but it is necessary information), blood pressure, oxygen level, and ask you about your medications. (An updated list of meds is a must, especially for a first-time patient.)
  • Wait times for your appointment can vary. Some clinic visits with certain providers are scheduled around surgeries. Sometimes, surgeries run longer than anticipated. Your patience and understanding in those situations are greatly appreciated.
  • Blood draws sometimes are required for appointments. If they aren’t arranged ahead of time, you may have to step over to our lab and one of our laboratory team members will take care of you.
