Caring for chronic, non-healing wounds to avoid recurrence

Wound Care at WKS

At West Kentucky Wound Care Center we treat a wide variety of wounds including:

  • Bedsores (pressure ulcers)
  • Chronic or non-healing wounds
  • Wounds of the legs or feet
  • Venous disease causing swollen legs and non-healing wounds
  • Diabetes mellitus with foot deformities, which can cause callouses and open wounds
  • Surgical wounds that fail to heal
  • Spider bites or abscesses
  • Burns
  • Ostomy related skin problems and wounds
  • Traumatic wounds

Our center is staffed by Jennie Bourne, APRN, CWA, and Cassie Graben, APRN, CWS, CV-BC, who are trained and certified in wound care. This care team assesses and determines the cause of the wound and identifies appropriate treatment options. The advanced practitioners work closely with Dr. Dowdy, Dr. Swain, Dr. Callie Dowdy and Dr. Wang to ensure the most up-to-date care is provided. Preventative techniques to keep wounds from recurring will be discussed and education of family and caregivers is an important component of your visit. Nutrition is very important to wound healing and further consultation may be needed with a dietician.
