Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine Center


 

Non-healing wounds, whether from chronic disease or an injury, can be a source of pain and disability. Wound management was created to assist patients with difficult wound-healing problems. Evaluation and treatment of chronic wounds and difficult to heal wounds are our specialty. We use the latest technologies and products in hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT).

 

Chronic wound management demands a team approach. Successful treatment requires highly specialized and closely coordinated care. The wound care and hyperbaric medicine center designs a complete, individualized treatment plan for each patient involving the patient’s family doctor or referring physician.


Treatment team members may include:

  • Plastic/re-constructive surgeons

  • Vascular surgeons

  • Foot surgeon 

  • Wound care specialists

  • Physical therapists

  • Nurses

  • Various other health professionals

Types of wounds treated may include:

  • Diabetic foot ulcers

  • Venous stasis ulcers

  • Arterial ulcers

  • Pressure ulcers

  • Burns
  • Other non-healing wounds

Healing may be impaired by:

  • Aging

  • Diseases such as diabetes

  • Disorders that damage blood vessels

  • Severe trauma

  • Certain medications

  • Infections

Because underlying problems can be difficult to treat, patients with chronic wounds can often have several of these problems at the same time. Successfully treating a chronic wound often requires the efforts of several medical specialists.
