Wound Care Center with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Our comprehensive outpatient Center for Wound Care offers extensive expertise and state-of-the-art technology for managing hard-to-heal wounds. In our Center for Wound Care, we treat wounds due to burns, insect bites and other causes in addition to chronic, non-healing wounds occurring in patients with diabetes. Our team includes physicians, nurses and technicians with training in wound management.
We can diagnose and design wound care programs for people with the following conditions:
- Diabetic foot wounds
- Traumatic wounds
- Venous stasis & varicose vein wounds
- Post surgical wounds
- Failing surgical flaps
- Autoimmune wounds
- Arterial wounds
- Soft tissue necrosis
- Late effects of radiation
- Any wound that is delayed in healing
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is recognized as an important addition to a proper wound care regimen in patients with advanced diabetic lower extremity ulcers and other conditions. And for tissues adversely affected by radiation therapy, HBOT has proven effective in encouraging the new capillary growth needed to increase the delivery of oxygen that fosters healing of damaged tissues.
In HBOT, 100-percent oxygen is administered at a controlled pressure (greater than sea level) for a prescribed amount of time – usually 90 minutes. This enables oxygen to reach bone and tissue that is normally inaccessible to red blood cells.
Local wound care, debridement, bio-engineered dressings, off-loading, surgical revascularization, antibacterial treatment, proper footwear, good diabetic control and adequate cardiovascular and renal health all contribute to wound healing success. HBOT’s unique physiology adds a valuable tool to this complex treatment regimen.
