A troublesome, slow-healing wound can be painful and prevent you from fully enjoying life. The Sutter Tracy Wound Ostomy Continence Center is the only fulltime facility of its kind in San Joaquin County. The center offers specialized care for leg and foot ulcers and other wounds related to diabetes, circulatory problems and unhealed surgical incisions.
Expert Wound Care
Specially trained in wound physiology and healing, our nurses use high tech wound care devices and specialized supplies to treat hard-to-heal wounds and do everything possible to minimize pain. They also consult with the patient’s physician on the best course of treatment and teach patients what they can do to improve their condition. Podiatrists and plastic and vascular surgeons are also available for consultation.
We respect our patient’s right to privacy. Our caring compassionate staff is able to seek care for patients promptly.
We have three certified Ostomy-trained nurses to help you with fitting, supplies and problems with skin. In addition, we can help teach Ostomy Care after surgery.
