Come to Nebraska Medicine for Advanced Wound Care
Whether it's gangrene, diabetic foot issues or a wound that just won't heal, the Nebraska Medicine Wound Ostomy Clinic offers specialists in a variety of disciplines to help you. We strive to minimize or eliminate anything that might be keeping your wound from healing properly, while also providing wound care and patient education.
Chronic non-healing or slow healing wounds go to our Wound Ostomy Clinic.
If you've already unsuccessfully sought treatment from your primary care doctor for a wound that is not healing, please request that your provider call us at 800.922.0000.
The clinic offers a team of doctors and specialists from multiple specialties to assist patients with chronic wounds which are not healing using other methods. In addition, services are available to patients with ostomies, including pre-surgical marking, education, post-surgical follow-up care and counseling. Certified foot, ostomy and wound care nurses bring specialized care for each patient.
