Thompson Health Wound Clinic

In the United States, approximately 6.5 million patients are affected by chronic wounds resulting from a number of factors including diabetes, poor circulation, trauma, vein disease, surgical incisions, and immobility. It is estimated that 1-2% of the population will experience a chronic wound in their lifetime.

  • 2.5 million pressure ulcers are treated annually in the U.S.
  • 25% of all people with diabetes will develop a diabetic foot ulcer
  • Prevalence of venous ulcers in U.S. is approximately 600,000 annually

Our comprehensive approach is designed to speed the healing process, allowing our patients to resume a normal lifestyle and regain their quality of life as quickly as possible.

Customized Care

Specialized wound care is critical to the healing process. It can shorten the time to heal, decrease the possibility of infection, and decrease pain. Dr. Farnsworth emphasizes education for prevention, and early detection of infection, in order to avoid hospitalization or surgery. She seeks to improve diabetes control for her patients to avoid foot ulcers and other complications, including amputation. Dr. Farnsworth believes in the judicious use of antibiotics to avoid resistant infections, leading to better outcomes for patients.
