Agnesian Expands Wound Care Services Through Ripon Clinic
More than eight million people in the United States suffer from chronic wounds that are difficult to heal due to diseases and conditions, such as diabetes, obesity, aging and the late effects of radiation therapy.
The opening of Agnesian Wound Care services at 790 Eastgate Drive in Ripon, off Highway 23, is bringing the community state-of-the-art treatment and practices to treat these chronic wounds.
“Caring for wounds utilizing hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) has proven to greatly assist in managing and healing wounds,” says Jon Moen (pictured above), MD, an Agnesian HealthCare board-certified general surgeon and new medical director of Agnesian Wound Care.
Agnesian Wound Care professionals have specialized and comprehensive training utilizing experience and successes demonstrated through a national program that has treated patients with two million chronic non-healing wounds.
Tracy Jessogne, APNP, a nurse practitioner, will care for patients at the Ripon clinic, in concert with Dr. Moen and Jonathan Stroebel, DPM, a podiatrist (ankle and foot physician) and member of the Agnesian Wound Care team. She earned her nursing degree from Marian College (now Marian University) and her nurse practitioner degree from the University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh. She has previous experience in providing wound care in both inpatient (hospital) and outpatient settings.
Each patient that receives care through Agnesian Wound Care receives a treatment plan designed with their specific needs in mind, using evidence-based wound management practices, in addition to HBO medicine. Agnesian Wound Care providers use a variety of clinical treatments, therapies and support services to treat chronic wounds in an outpatient setting.
“Likely candidates for treatment at Agnesian Wound Care are those experiencing diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections, radiation side effects and other wounds that have not healed within 30 days,” says Dr. Stroebel.
Patients that can benefit from hyperbaric oxygen therapy will be referred to Agnesian Wound Care services at the Agnesian Health Plaza, Building A, located at 421 Camelot Drive in Fond du Lac, off the Highway 151 Bypass.
Agnesian Wound Care in Ripon has been open since August 3. Access to services is to the back of the existing Eastgate Drive clinic (adjacent to the new Ripon Medical Center).
