Patient Information

What can I do to ­increase the chance of my wound ­healing?

Your health care provider will provide you with specific instructions on how to ­manage your dressings. Please follow all ­instructions carefully as this will ­increase the chance of successful wound healing.

It is crucial to keep your regular ­appointments ­following the application of Geistlich ­Derma-Gide®. Chronic hard-to-heal wounds need support to ­heal and regular applications (typically weekly) are ­essential to increase the chance of wound healing.

The biggest improvement will be seen within the first several weeks of graft application. Please continue to follow your health care ­provider's instructions ­(including returning to the ­clinic for ­additional ­applications) because even small wounds may have ­difficulty healing without the use of an ­advanced wound matrix.
