Beaumont vascular and wound care services offered in Macomb County

6/5/2007

Beaumont medical centers in St. Clair Shores and Macomb Township now offer area residents vascular testing and wound care treatment.

"Residents of Macomb County now have two convenient locations offering proven Beaumont programs- accredited vascular labs and wound care treatment for all chronic wounds," says Eric Hunt, vice president of operations for Beaumont's Ambulatory Services division.

Peripheral vascular disease is a circulation disorder that involves a narrowing of the blood vessels that carry blood to the leg and arm muscles. Both medical centers offer noninvasive vascular testing including ultrasound (arterial, venous, carotid and abdominal testing) and vascular screening.

In addition to vascular testing, wound care services are offered. Both wound care centers are staffed by doctors and nurses specializing in the treatment of sores or wounds that have resisted healing after months and even years of traditional treatment. Wounds treated include pressure ulcers, venous ulcers, arterial ulcers, minor burns, non-healing surgical wounds and diabetic wounds.

The Beaumont Medical Center, St. Clair Shores is located at 25631 Little Mack. The facility houses the offices of doctors specializing in internal medicine, family practice, obstetrics/gynecology, cardiology, orthopedics and pulmonary medicine. Beaumont services include general radiology, ultrasound, digital mammography, vascular testing, wound care, bone density testing and laboratory testing.

The Beaumont Medical Center, Macomb Township is located at 15979 Hall Road. The facility offers vascular testing; wound care; diagnostic services; physical and occupational therapy; and heart-related services (including stress testing, echocardiography and cardiac rehabilitation). The center also offers laboratory services; radiology services (including general X-ray, digital mammography, CT, ultrasound and mobile magnetic resonance imaging); and nuclear medicine (including state-of-the-art technology for bone and infection imaging and bone density imaging). An ambulatory surgery center recently opened offering a variety of same-day surgeries.
