Medicare typically pays 100% of the cost of home wound care for eligible patients. Additionally, some of the private insurances may cover in-home wound care.
CARE IN THE COMFORT OF HOME
Our caring wound care trained providers come to your home to provide advanced wound services including:
- Wound debridement: removes dead or inflamed tissues so the wound can heal
- Compression therapy: helps a wound heal faster by promoting healthy blood flow. Patients with venous ulcers benefit from compression therapy.
- Negative pressure wound therapy: aims to optimize the physiology involved in wound healing by applying sub-atmospheric pressure to help reduce inflammatory exudate and promote granulation tissue.
- Selection of proper dressing and other product options: selecting the correct product is crucial for proper wound management, starting from standard-of-care treatments and advancing with skin substitute products used to help the wound close and accelerate healing.
- Collaboration with your Home Health agency. Home is where many people feel safest and most comfortable. For these reasons, in-home wound care patients sometimes recover faster with fewer complications.

Our team members are thoroughly screened and receive ongoing training, so they can provide research-backed care. We form special bonds with our patients, sometimes becoming like a second family.

TYPES OF WOUNDS
The experts at the Reno Home Wound Center offer diagnosis and treatment for a wide variety of wounds, including: Arterial ulcers, diabetic ulcers, venous ulcers, pressure ulcers, surgical wounds, wound cause by trauma, non-healing and slow-healing wounds.
Arterial (ischemic) ulcers
An arterial ulcer occurs when there is inadequate blood flow to the legs. The most common cause of arterial ulcers is atherosclerosis, which causes the arteries to become clogged and prevents healthy blood flow through the body. When blood cannot reach the feet or legs, tissue damage occurs and may cause an open wound on the lower extremities. The sore is slow to mend due to the lack of blood flow necessary for healing. Adults with diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure and those who smoke and are older are most at risk for developing arterial ulcers.
Neuropathic and Diabetic ulcers
A neuropathic ulcer occurs as a result of decreased sensation. One of the most common causes is diabetes, which can cause nerve damage to the feet that allows wounds to go unnoticed. In addition, high blood sugar levels can alter the body’s ability to fight an infection and heal the wound. Neuropathic ulcers can take months to heal if not properly treated.
These open sores occur on the legs as a result of venous insufficiency. Venous insufficiency causes leg swelling that can result in tissue damage, because the veins cannot properly send blood from the legs back up to the heart. Adults with a history of blood clots, multiple pregnancies, prolonged standing/inactivity, IV drug use and conditions that cause clot formation are most at risk of developing venous insufficiency and venous ulcers.
Untreated wounds can cause serious problems, including infection, pain and, in some cases, limb loss. Experts at the Comprehensive Wound Center provide a variety of specialty treatments and therapies for patients with non-healing wounds.
Our clinicians work together with other specialists to offer patients a comprehensive treatment plan. We often collaborate during your appointment with providers from other specialties, such as infectious disease; oncology; vascular, general and plastic surgery; and physical and occupational therapy services.
We provide this care and wound management in the privacy of your home.
