Understanding Radiated Wounds


Radiated wounds are very difficult.  Typically radiated wounds occurs result of treatment for some sort of cancer.  Sometimes treatment is for cancer of the skin and the limb is radiated because the cancer cannot be surgically removed.  Oftentimes the radiation causes wounds that are more difficult to manage in the cancer was in the 1st place.  This can be corrected by removing the radiated tissue and applying a graft or other reconstructive options.  But these rated wounds cannot be cared.  Rate wounds often occur in women with breast cancer.  Oftentimes with advanced breast cancer adjuvant radiation is required which causes contraction and thinning of the tissue which makes the tissue very difficult to heal and very difficult to reconstruct particularly for ladies undergoing breast reconstruction.  The radiated tissue although difficult to manage can be managed with persistence and fine surgical care and postoperative management.  Often patients with radiated wounds are told by various physicians that they need to keep placing dressings and hoping that this will heal.  Usually by the time patients To Dr. Jacobsen they have had a long term care that is been frustrating and debilitating for them.  If you have a radiation wound consulting with Dr. Jacobsen may help you find an answer to heal you fax faster than months and years of wound care.

  • review rating 5  Dr J is the best! I have an ongoing issue with a medical implant that he has cleared up several times. Every time I contact him he is right there. This last time he actually met me on a Sunday to help me. I highly recommend Dr J. His bedside manner makes you feel that no matter what everything will be okay.

  • review rating 5  I think he’s a wonderful surgeon and extreme talent. I can in for a bilateral breast augmentation after having breast fed my 2 sons. What he did to my body and self esteem is immaculate. I’m so happy with his hand I work. I had almost NO bruising at all and they gave the the perfect amount of pain medicine to get me though and still functioning. I gave him a 5 star rating because of his skills and professionalism. How ever if you don’t come stacked with your own questions and concerns he can’t do anything for you. He’s a surgeon who knows all this stuff but not exactly the fountain of information. He will litterly only tell you and give you what you ask for. Don’t make him guess or try to let him lead the conversation when it comes to concerns and post up care. Make a list of questions and stick with it. He will answer them all perfectly. It’d help to do your research and bring your own pictures with a ‘cc’ in mind. HE WILL GIVE YOU WHATEVER YOU ASK FOR!❤️

  • review rating 5  Dr Jacobsen performed surgery on the back of my leg to remove melanoma, I also had a sentinel lymph node biopsy at the same time. Dr J is professional, knowledgeable and very dedicated to patient care. I had to have the lymph node incision drained several times and he got me in quickly and also worked around my hectic schedule. He even came in while he was on vacation! He was always so reassuring and very kind. Dr J goes above and beyond! His office staff is very responsive and they are so pleasant to work with. I am grateful to have been referred to Dr J and his office😌

  • review rating 5  I didn’t know what to expect at first.. but Dr. J answered all of our questions we had when we went in. He was so friendly and welcoming and so was the staff. Everyone there was amazing. I got all my questions answered so quickly with email. My surgery went great and I went in for my first Post op appt yesterday... I couldn’t be happier with the experience. Dr. J is absolutely amazing and I would recommend him to everyone given the chance.

  • review rating 5  I honestly cannot say enough about the entire experience. From the girls at the front to Dr. J, nothing was short of first class excellence met with an one of a kind feeling of being amongst people who really care. Whether its the little things of being offered water for every visit or Dr. J himself, you just get an incredible unrivaled experience here. Dr. J is extremely nice and genuine to say the least, and his work shows! I had a nasty raised scar from a dog bite and was really nervous to have that taken out, but the whole experience was virtually painless and smooth. Not to mention what Dr. J did was just flat out impressive. I can barely even tell there was anything there to begin with..so so thankful.
