Life long educator learns first hand the benefits of wound care

A life long teacher, Phyllis stood at the head of a classroom for 35 years. When the small bumps and scabs Phyllis had developed on her foot were not healing, she knew it was time to get help. Her care team investigated the factors were making it difficult for Phyllis’ wound to heal and created a targeted management plan including specialized dressings and synthetic skin. Uncovering Phyllis’ barriers to healing helped her physicians choose which of their advanced methods to use and informed their recommendations for at-home care. Now that “that wound is no longer in my way,” Phyllis is going on trips and is active in church.
