Wound Biopsy in Los Angeles & Ventura County

If you have a chronic non-healing wound or atypical wound, your wound care specialist will recommend to have a wound biopsy. A wound biopsy is the most definitive diagnostic test to evaluate the cause of the non-healing wound and can be performed in the office.

There are different types of wound biopsies however wound biopsies are performed using one of the following methods:

  • Incisional biopsy – With this procedure, only a small piece of the wound tissue is removed in order to identify the composition of the lesion.
  • Punch biopsy – This procedure is done with a 4 mm circular blade attached to a pencil-like handle, which is rotated down through the epidermis and dermis, and into the subcutaneous tissue of the wound margins, producing a cylindrical core of tissue.

How Wound Biopsy in Los Angeles & Ventura is Performed.

Wound biopsy is done in the office under local anesthesia. The sample is sent to the pathologist for review and diagnosis.
