Accepting new patients
Dr. Kessels, a certified wound specialist, leads a team of nurses and certified hyperbaric technicians with a combined 50 years of experience. This highly qualified team has healed thousands of wounds using the most sophisticated treatment options available, including ultrasonic debridement, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, Sensilase technology for blood circulation assessment and bioengineered skin substitutes. While Dr. Kessels and his staff deliver latest treatment options, he finds "getting back to basics"- extensive patient education, focus on prevention, collaboration with other physicians and family - results in successful wound healing. Because Dr. Kessels identifies the underlying causes for non-healing wounds, he is able to develop a care plan that treats the whole patient.
"When patients have other medical problems such as diabetes, skin tears and minor sores can be challenging to heal. Developing a plan that includes the underlying causes is a must," Dr. Kessels says. "Our goal is to help the patient regain the quality of life enjoyed before the wound became debilitating and ultimately keep the patient wound free. We recognize the root causes and work directly with our patients and families to be certain the factors contributing to the condition are addressed."
