What is Wound Care?
Wounds are caused by numerous injuries, medical conditions, and chronic diseases, such as diabetes and venous disease. While minor wounds can often heal in one to two weeks with minimal attention and care, some wounds do not heal easily and can become “chronic.” A “chronic wound” is generally defined as a wound that is more than four weeks old and has made minimal or no progress in healing. These wounds are often painful, debilitating, and hard to heal. Dr. Abrahamsen and his team are dedicated to your chronic wound care.
How Much does Wound Care Cost?
The cost of your wound care treatment is going to vary depending on your current health insurance plan and the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results. To get a more accurate estimate of the cost of your wound care treatment, we encourage you to come into our office for a private consultation with Dr. Abrahamsen and his skilled team.

What Can I Expect During my Cryotherapy Treatment?
A very important part of a successful treatment plan is education. The Advanced Vein Center offers thorough training for you, your family, and/or caregivers on caring for your wound at home. Educational materials and resources related to prevention, nutrition, hygiene, and other key topics can also be provided for you, your family, and/or caregivers. Dressings and frequent dressing changes are an extremely important part of the healing process. Dressings come in all shapes, sizes, and costs. We will always use the most cost-effective options because we recognize that sometimes the most expensive dressing is not always the best choice.
