Time does not heal all wounds

For most people, wound healing is a natural process that occurs in a predictable and timely manner. For some, however, it becomes a complex medical problem requiring specialized treatment. If you suffer with a wound that isn’t healing in a reasonable amount of time, we may be able to help.

Our trained specialists follow a multidisciplinary approach and use the most advanced technologies available to heal complicated wounds. Each patient receives a comprehensive, individualized plan of care to help heal complicated wounds. We understand that each patient has unique needs and we create a treatment plan that takes this into consideration.  Our staff will coordinate with your primary care physician and other care providers to ensure the best possible outcome.

We use the most advanced wound healing therapies and dressings available. Treatment modalities include: wound debridement, compression therapy, bio-engineered dressings, off-loading, antibacterial treatment, vacuum-assisted wound closure, hyperbaric medicine and patient education to help manage your unique health issues that will affect wound healing.

The Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center is staffed by experienced physicians and other healthcare professionals who are specially trained in wound management and hyperbaric medicine. The success of our facility is a reflection of our dedicated staff, who provide unparalleled service to our patients. Our staff continuously attends educational seminars to remain on the cutting edge of advanced wound care.

Conditions that generally benefit from specialized wound management include:

  • Arterial ulcers
  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Venous Stasis ulcers
  • Vasculitic ulcers

  • Traumatic wounds

 

Conditions that are approved for HBOT include:

  • Diabetic Wounds of Lower Extremities – nonhealing wounds complicated by secondary effects of diabetes
  • Acute Peripheral Arterial Insufficiency – caused by sudden loss of blood flow due to a clot or blockage of an artery leading to loss of limbs
  • Compromised Skin Grafts – caused by swelling and/or inadequate blood flow to grafts and/or flaps
  • Chronic Refractory Osteomyelitis – caused by persistent bone infection that often leads to amputation
  • Osteoradionecrosis – caused by radiation damage to the bones from cancer treatment
  • Soft Tissue Radionecrosis – caused by radiation damage to the bowels, bladder or skin from cancer treatment
  • Gas Gangrene – caused by poison-producing bacteria that destroy tissues
  • Acute Traumatic Peripheral Ischemia – caused by sudden loss of blood flow to an extremity due to injury
  • Crush Injuries – crushing can result in a lack of blood flow to the soft tissues of the body
  • Necrotizing Infections – caused by “flesh-eating bacteria”, which progressively destroy tissue
