About Acute Wounds

Acute wounds are injuries to the skin that occur suddenly due to trauma or surgical procedures. These wounds typically heal relatively quickly and follow the expected stages of the healing process. However, certain circumstances can lead to complications or delayed healing. At Wound and Burn Centers of America, we specialize in understanding and treating acute wounds, employing advanced techniques and therapies under the guidance of Dr. Babak Hajhosseini, an esteemed expert in wound healing.

Signs & Symptoms Of Acute Wounds:

  • Pain or tenderness at the wound site
  • Swelling or inflammation
  • Redness or warmth around the wound
  • Bleeding or oozing
  • Presence of a visible break in the skin
  • Impaired function or restricted movement in the affected area

Surgical Wounds

Surgical wounds are incisions made during surgical procedures with the intention of treating a specific condition or performing a medical intervention. These wounds are carefully closed using sutures, staples, or other closure methods to promote healing. However, surgical wounds can be prone to complications such as infection or dehiscence (separation of wound edges). At Wound and Burn Centers of America, we specialize in managing and treating surgical wounds, ensuring optimal healing outcomes for our patients.

Surgical wound dehiscence refers to the separation or opening of the edges of a surgical incision. This complication can occur due to factors such as excessive tension on the wound, poor wound healing, or infection. It may lead to the exposure of underlying tissues and delay the healing process. Our experienced team specializes in managing surgical wound dehiscence to promote proper wound closure and minimize complications.

Skin grafts and tissue flaps are commonly used in reconstructive surgeries to repair and restore damaged areas. However, these grafts and flaps can face complications, such as graft failure, poor blood supply, or infection. Graft failure can occur due to various factors, including inadequate blood supply, poor graft integration, or rejection by the recipient’s immune system, hindering the success of the grafting procedure.

Traumatic Wounds

Traumatic wounds result from unexpected injuries stemming from accidents, falls, or external forces. While they are generally non-life-threatening, some traumatic wounds may not be suitable for immediate closure with sutures due to their nature or extent. Such wounds may include lacerations, abrasions, puncture wounds, or crush injuries. Our specialized team, led by Dr. Hajhosseini, is proficient in managing and treating traumatic wounds to facilitate healing and mitigate potential complications.
