Chemical Cauterization in Lewisville, TX

What is Chemical Cauterization?

Chemical cauterization is a cutting-edge, non-invasive treatment that aids in removing unwanted tissues from a wound and stopping the wound from bleeding. At StrideWoundCare, we use silver nitrate for all of our chemical cauterizations. This inorganic compound naturally, which has been used in medical practice for centuries, works to promote healing in open wounds like ulcers, stomas, and hyper-granulated tissue. Our medical professionals may recommend chemical cauterization treatments if you suffer from chronic open wounds that won't heal on their own.

What are the Benefits of Chemical Cauterization?

There are many benefits of receiving chemical cauterization treatments with the medical professionals at StrideWoundCare, including:

  • Non-invasive procedure
  • Reduces or completely stops bleeding from a wound
  • Helps remove excess or hyper-granulated tissues from a wound

What Can I Expect During My Chemical Cauterization?

Your chemical cauterization will be performed by one of StrideWoundCare's expert medical professionals. Your chemical cauterization will simply consist of running silver nitrate sticks over the open wound until hyper-granulated tissue is removed or the wound stops bleeding. The silver nitrate immediately acts as a bonding agent over the wound to promote healing. Our medical professionals may recommend regular treatments to achieve ultimate results.

What Can I Expect After My Chemical Cauterization?

Immediately following your chemical cauterization treatment, you may notice slight discomfort around your treatment area. This is normal and typically fades on its own within an hour of treatment. Most patients report experiencing their desired results immediately after treatment, with ultimate results appearing once all discomfort subsides.

How Much Does Chemical Cauterization Cost?

The cost of your chemical cauterization will vary depending on the type of treatment you receive and your health insurance coverage. StrideWoundCare is also happy to offer financing options through CareCredit® that allow you to pay for your treatments at your convenience.
