RMC Wound Clinic Enhancing Treatment for Diabetic Foot Ulcers

May 28, 2024 in News, Wound Clinic

Regional Medical Center (RMC) Wound Clinic nursing staff has earned their Master Caster Certification through the TCC-EZ Master Caster Education Program, strengthening their knowledge and practice of casting to help keep pressure off foot wounds.

The TCC-EZ® Total Contact Cast System is used to treat patients suffering from diabetic foot ulcers. By completing the specialized application and skills program, our Wound Clinic team is positioned to help patients heal diabetic foot ulcers faster and potentially decrease the risk of amputations. 

“Our goal is to heal the wounds of our patients and total contact casting is a great way to aid in their recovery,” shared Ann Funke, RMC Wound Clinic Supervisor. “By providing our wound care team with this valuable training, we will be able to create an even better patient experience while having the opportunity to heal more diabetic foot ulcers.”

This advanced treatment modality reduces pressure on the wound and increases the pace and probability of healing. TCC is considered the “gold standard” of therapeutic offloading and this designation of the two-year TCC-EZ Master Caster certificate reflects Regional Medical Center’s commitment to exceptional practices. To learn more about the RMC Wound Clinic, please visit regmedctr.org/woundclinic.
