Danbury Hospital’s Robert J. and Pamela Morganti Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine recently acquired the Quostic Wound Therapy System and is already putting this unique Ultrasonic Wound Therapy (UWT) to work healing patients’ wounds. Several million people suffer from chronic wounds, which do not always respond to conservative medical treatments. More than half of the patients who use the wound care center need debridement to help with a chronic, debilitating condition. Without proper treatment, wounds can worsen and lead to further complications, including amputation.
“The new UWT technology offers a deeper level of cleaning for infection prevention, quicker healing and typically less pain than traditional methods, said David Charash, D.O., medical director of the Wound Care Center at Danbury Hospital. “Unlike traditional methods that use scalpels and Novocain to debride wounds, the new ultrasonic technology is cleaner, faster, and promotes quality wound healing and debridement with less pain for our patients.”
Danbury Hospital’s Robert J. and Pamela Morganti Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine is the first center in the state to utilize the Arobella Qoustic Wound Therapy System to provide almost painless ultrasonic debridement. The medical staff are all credentialed in the new technology at the wound center. This technology is an additional tool that the wound care team can offer to help promote wound healing.
